Jefferson County Schools outline plan to make up missed days during Winter storms

Posted: Updated:
JEFFERSON COUNTY - AL -

Jefferson County Schools are formulating the plan to make up missed days during Winter weather. 

It's re-focusing on the needed standards for the remainder of the school year. 

Curriculum and Instruction Content Supervisors will offer webinars for teachers on Monday, February 24 to address pacing guides. 

Revisions will address identifying critical standards as well as condensing and integrating the delivery of standards into concepts so that the critical standards can be met. 

A revised pacing guide for math will be posted on the system website.

In order to keep from changing student routines, assessment windows and grading periods will not be changed. 

The district says it will modify next year's school calendar to include several weather days in case this happens again.
