Important School Calendar Information:
School delays are typically decided by 6:00 AM while school closures are decided by 8:00 AM.
There is much talk on the news lately about the switch from a days-based to an hours-based school calendar. B-C-S is on an hours-based calendar. As you can see from the calendar this school year and the ones for the upcoming school years, we still make up calamity days beyond five just as we did under the days-based calendar. The switch from a days-based to an hours-based calendar has not impacted most people; the switch impacts staff responsible for state reporting and student attendance. Along these lines, I was recently asked by a newspaper if the switch from days to hours impacts the decisions about delay or closure of school, and the answer is that the switch has absolutely no impact on these important decisions.
