Gwinnett County approves weather make-up plan

Posted: Updated:

Gwinnett County Schools announced their plan to make up instructional time missed due to severe weather on Monday morning.

According to the plan:

  • The school system will use its three built-in make-up days: February 17, March 14, and May 22.
  • The remaining four days will be made up by extending the school day by 30 minutes for 48 days. This means that all schools will dismiss a half-hour later than their regular time, from March 3 through May 14. The last day of school will be Thursday, May 22.
  • Regarding teacher workdays, teachers will work a required staff development day on Friday, May 23. School leaders will work with their teachers on making up the other two staff development days, ensuring they are completed prior to June 6.

Gwinnett County Schools Superintendent J. Alvin Wilbanks says, "The addition of 30 minutes to the school day during March, April, and early May will allow us to make up the equivalent of four instructional days in what is the least disruptive manner possible, as students and teachers already will be at school. The proposed plan is a logical, responsible one that we feel will best serve our students, teachers, and staff."
