School Day Back to Normal, Make-up Time Forgiven

111 Juniors spent Saturday at school voluntarily at the ACT Super Saturday review session.

Thursday, the North Carolina State Board of Education suspended State Board Policy GCS-M-001 for the 2013-2014 School Year. The policy sets the seat hour requirements for courses taught on the semester block schedule. With the State Board decision to suspend this policy, our Superintendent Dr. Ellis has been granted the flexibility to waive the missed student days that required schools to add 11 extra minutes to their daily schedule.

Starting on Monday, March 10th, schools will re-adjust their dismissal and release times to their normal schedules.

Again, based on the action taken Thursday by the North Carolina State Board of Education, Dr. Ellis has waived the additional missed days and students will no longer have to attend school for an extra eleven minutes.
