PB School Board Considering Makeup Days For Hurricane Irma

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Palm Beach County School District) —

Three previously scheduled professional development days for teachers in the School District of Palm Beach County have been proposed as make-up days for Hurricane Irma.

These days – October 16, November 3 and January 8, 2018 – will be presented to the School Board for approval at Wednesday’s regular Board meeting. All Palm Beach County schools were closed seven school days to prepare for and clean up after Irma.

Two of the days were waived by Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart. The District will seek a waiver from Commissioner Stewart and the State Board of Education for the additional two school days lost to Irma.

The decision to make up the days was made after consulting with an advisory group of principals, teachers and other community stakeholders.
