Richland 1 school district plans to make up all seven days its schools were closed because of last week’s flooding, according to release from the district on Thursday.
The district’s schools re-opened on Wednesday. Students will now report to school on Feb. 15, March 18 and May 30, three dates previously designated as makeup days in case of inclement weather.
Another day, Oct. 23, was scheduled to be a teacher workday, but students will now report to school for a regular day instead, the release said.
Richland 1 has not yet announced when the remaining three days will be made up. State law requires students to receive 180 days of instruction each year.
“We believe that every day of instructional time is critical,” Richland 1 Superintendent Craig Witherspoon said in the release. “It is our intention for our students to make up all seven days. We will not seek to waive any of the days missed.”
