Extended-year schools, which are scheduled for 196 days of classroom instruction this year, do not typically make up inclement weather days until after five days have been missed. GCS must ensure that students at every school meet the state’s 1,025-instructional hour requirement, regardless of whether the state was under a state of emergency.
