School Make-Up Calls For Longer Days

They’ve got to be made up some­how…

School days in Bryan Schools will get a bit longer begin­ning March 31st. On the good side, kids will be happy to hear that because of the longer days, the school year will also end a bit ear­lier.

The Bryan Times reports that the Bryan City Board of Edu­ca­tion on Mon­day, approved a plan to extend the school days by a half hour to make up for days lost this win­ter due to the weather.

All in all, the school lost 17 days this year.

Five of the 17 days are waived by the state as annual calamity days, three days were made up through “bliz­zard bag” out-of-school assign­ments, and an addi­tional four days were approved by the state leg­is­la­ture March 12, leav­ing the dis­trict five days short.

To make them up, begin­ning Mon­day, March 31 through May 30th, the school day will be extended by one half hour, begin­ning 15 min­utes ear­lier and con­clud­ing 15 min­utes later. That will make up four of the days.

The final day will be made up by hav­ing school on Good Fri­day, April 18, but with an early dismissal.
