Governor to work with school districts on making up for lost time

The Charlotte Observer reports that Gov. Pat McCrory said Friday he’ll work with education leaders to give North Carolina school districts flexibility in making up time lost from snow and other inclement weather.

Snow storms have added more time that school districts need to make up on top of the time lost last month and earlier this school year. McCrory said during a Friday news conference that he’s doing a “quick review” of the state’s school calendar law and hopes to make an announcement soon on what can be done to assist school superintendents working on makeup-day plans.

Under state law, school districts are required to have either 185 days of classes or 1,025 hours of instruction per school year. Most school districts opted to meet the 1,025-hour requirement
