BPS School Board Approves Hurricane Ian Make-Up Days

During an October School Board meeting, the Board approved the Superintendent’s recommendation for Hurricane Ian make-up days.


The approved plan moves two days from second semester to first semester. Those days are January 6th and January 9th. The second semester will now begin on January 10, 2023.  In addition, the board approved converting four early release Fridays to regular school days. The days impacted are:

November 4, 2022

November 18, 2022

December 2, 2022

January 6, 2023


This approved plan provides for the correct number of hours and minutes needed to meet state requirements and preserves the Thanksgiving week holiday for students, families, and staff. It also preserves the three days before winter break (December 19, 20, and 21, 2022) as exam days/early dismissal days for students. Any other storms this hurricane season that result in time away from school could potentially impact the identified hurricane makeup days on the calendar.
