Broward County School Board unanimously approved utilizing two previously scheduled early release days as makeup days for Hurricane Irma on Tuesday, October 3rd. This will allow BCPS to have no changes to winter break, spring break or the last day of school.
The makeup day, Thursday, October 19th and Friday, December 22nd were selected in consideration of students and staff commitments for vacation and holidays scheduled around the school year calendar. Though December is exam week for Deerfield Beach High School so that will remain an early release due to test scheduling.
In addition to the makeup days, the School Board approved amending the school calendar to shift the start of the second quarter to Monday, October 30th, and the start of the third quarter to Tuesday, January 16th.
