The bottom line is that state/federal policies mandate a certain number of teacher workdays during the school year. There is no way around taking a teacher workday as a makeup day unless we have more scheduled workdays built into the school calendar than the policies mandate. The state/federal policies also mandate that students have to attend 180 days of class instruction or they will not receive credit for the classes they are enrolled in. The county board is limited in what they can do to circumvent these policies. Sure, in the future, inclement weather days could be built into the calendar. That is another topic of discussion.
