Winter Weather Make-Up Days
When winter weather closed schools for several days earlier this year, everyone knew that some of the days would have to be made-up. As a result Friday, April 22 AND Monday June 6, 2011, will be a regular class days in the Fort Worth Independent School District. Parents are urged to ensure their students are in class on both make-up days. Regular absence rules will apply.
Despite Mother Nature’s plans, the state requirement for 180 class days still remains. The District sets aside two days annually on the School Calendar as “snow days”, or make-up days. In the 2010-2011 Calendar those days are Friday, April 22 and Monday, June 6, 2011. Students will be required to be in class both days this year.
The School Calendar is approved by the Board of Education and is developed by a committee of 48 teachers, principals, school board members, community representatives, administrative and support staff.
