Broward School District Calendar Changes To Make Up For “Hurricane Days”

Broward County Florida News Palm Beach County


BROWARD COUNTY, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Broward County School District is adding two days of school to compensate for the days lost due to Hurricane Ian. The good news: the school year isn’t getting any longer. The calendar change only affects “early release” days.

We note that Palm Beach County is NOT making any changes, at least at this point, as a result of its closure for Hurricane Ian.

This is the official announcement from the Broward County School District: “Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) will utilize two previously scheduled early release days – Thursday, January 12, 2023, and Thursday, April 20, 2023 – as make-up days following Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Nicole. District schools will implement full-day schedules on those two days.”

It was not immediately clear why the Broward School District felt the need to make up for the hurricane days. Most school calendars are padded with a few to several extra days to make up for unexpected closures.
