<h1>School systems across the state are assessing the number of instructional days lost this year to inclement weather and the statewide work stoppage.<\/h1>\r\nIn order to meet the 180 instructional days mandated in WV State Code, county boards of education are modifying their school calendars accordingly. To date, Greenbrier County Schools has lost two instructional days to inclement weather and nine days to the statewide work stoppage.\r\n\r\nWith survey input from almost 1,700 respondents and a commitment to minimizing the impact on students and families, Greenbrier County Schools announced adjustments to the 2017-18 school calendar. These revisions (outlined below) have students making up the two inclement weather days and only four of the nine days lost as a result of the work stoppage.\u00a0 Students will make up a total of six days.\r\n\r\nThe approved calendar modifications are as follows:\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>The Apr. 17 PLC is canceled<\/li>\r\n \t<li>Friday, Mar. 30, will be an instructional day with a 2-hour early dismissal for PLCs<\/li>\r\n \t<li>Students\u2019 spring break will be Monday, Apr. 2 - Friday, Apr. 6<\/li>\r\n \t<li>All staff will report to work on Apr. 3 - 6 for Professional Learning Days<\/li>\r\n \t<li>The last day of school for students is Friday, June 8. If Re-imagined Time Days remain unused, students\u2019 last day could be June 5, with June 6, 7, and 8 being re-imagined days. Students would turn in packets prior to June 5.<\/li>\r\n \t<li>The last workday for teachers is June 15.<\/li>\r\n \t<li>Graduation will remain as scheduled.<\/li>\r\n<\/ul>\r\n\u201cWe anticipate that calendar revisions will be necessary each year, and we make those changes in order to meet our 180-day mandate. Even with the extraordinary circumstances, we have experienced this year, we are very pleased to be able to preserve spring break for students [with exception of Good Friday]. Barring any unforeseen events, students will now finish up on June 8,\u201d states Superintendent Jeff Bryant.\r\n\r\n\u201cBy working during spring break and extending their work days through June 15, our staff will make up all of the work stoppage days in order to fulfill their contracts,\u201d concluded Bryant.\r\n\r\nThe revised calendar was approved at the Mar. 13 meeting of the Greenbrier County Board of Education. The revisions have been submitted to the West Virginia Department of Education.
