The Marion County Board of Education approved to change Monday, January 22, 2018, from a professional development day to a make-up day for students. Students were out of school January 3 - 5, 2018 due to snow and icy road conditions. The other two days will be February 23, 2018, and March 16, 2018, which were already built into the school calendar as Emergency/Inclement Weather make-up days. This brings the total number of days missed and made-up to four, the district missed September 11, 2017, due to Hurricane Irma and made that day up on December 20, 2017. State law mandates school districts make up the first three days missed due to bad weather or other circumstances. After that, the school board can forgive the next three days missed, or schedule a makeup day on Saturday.
This also shifts the ending of Quarter 2/Semester 1 to January 24th, 2018. Report cards will be distributed on January 30, 2018.
