The Bowling Green City Schools Board of Education approved a resolution on February 1, 2014 adopting a calamity day alternative make-up plan. Click here to see the resolution and plan. (PDF)
The Board also modified the school calendar to open school on Monday, February 17 (President's Day) to make up 1 calamity day. Students should plan to attend school that day.
The Bowling Green City School District values the time our students spend in our classrooms, and this is our priority when we consider various options to make up calamity days. Prior to Spring Break our district will examine the number of calamity days that need to be made up to determine whether:
1) to add 30 minutes to each day after spring break;
2) to implement the use of blizzard bags/online make up time; and/or
3) to add days to the end of the year.
We will continue to monitor pending legislation allowing for the use of additional calamity days and provide you with timely updates as decisions are made.
As of February 12, BG Schools has used 14 calamity days. 5 days are forgiven by the State, and President's Day is 1 make up day. That leaves 8 days to make up at this time.
