North Carolina May Forgive School Days Missed Because of Hurricane Upheaval

North Carolina legislators are working on a plan to “forgive” districts in areas that bore the brunt of Hurricane Florence’s impact for school days they missed because of the storm.

Another proposal would ensure that teachers and other district employees who missed work because of Florence will get paid for those days.

State lawmakers are expected to return soon to Raleigh for a special session on the state’s immediate poststorm needs. As school officials in hard-hit areas began to assess the damages to district buildings, they said one of their worries is meeting the 185 instructional days districts must have each year and mandatory class-size requirements, especially because many teachers sustained significant damages to their homes and may have to relocate, at least temporarily.
