Days Missed For Inclement Weather Ruling
March 21, 2015
The State Board of Education and Attorney General have given districts guidance in regards to making up days missed due to inclement weather this spring. The SBE has given two options for districts to use following guidance from the Attorney General:
1) (In accordance to MS Code Ann. 37-13-64) If districts have given authority to the Superintendent in Board Policy and in the Superintendent's job description to close school in extreme weather conditions, the days shall be forgiven.
2) If that authority has not been granted to the Superintendent, districts must make up missed days. After making up 4 full days, districts may make up days day-for-day or add a minimum of 60 minutes of instruction to each day in order to make up days missed.
With each option, the district must provide documentation and submit proof for either option in order for a waiver to be granted.
THANKFULLY, Board Policy and the job description for the Superintendent for Tishomingo County includes the authority to close school due to inclement weather. Therefore, we WILL NOT have to make up the 8 1/2 days missed due to the weather this year. The 2014-2015 school calendar is in effect and will be followed accordingly. That means, the Good Monday Holiday WILL be awarded and school will end for students on May 21st and will end for teachers and staff on May 22nd.
Our district will be submitting the needed documentation to MDE to receive the waiver for Option 1.
