in the Darlington County School District have now missed five student
days due to inclement weather: January 28, January 29, January 30,
February 12, and February 13. February 14 was not originally a student
school day on the calendar. The Darlington County School District will
make up at least three of those missed days. Two days will be made up on February 28 and March 3, and the third is yet to be determined by the Darlington County Board of Education.
which was originally a staff development day, was one of three days
designated on the school district’s calendar as a make-up day. Since
March 3 is now a regular student day, DCSD employees will use June 6 as a
staff development day.
At the February board meeting, the Darlington County Board
of Education voted to use February 28 as an inclement weather makeup
day. February 28 is now a regular student day. As such, attendance will be taken and absences will count.
State law requires districts to make up all missed student
days; however, a bill before the SC legislature will allow school boards
to forgive some inclement weather days if the board chooses to do so.
Later this month, the Darlington County Board of Education
will consider several options to address the remaining three missed
school days, including forgiveness if that option is available.
