Along with most school systems in Georgia, the Coweta County School System has a flexibility contract with the state that is called a Strategic Waiver School System (SWSS) contract. This means we are not required by law or state board rule to make up days that are missed. In other words, it is up to us as a local school system to decide if we make up missed days. As with any decision that impacts schedules, there are many factors to consider.
- We can adjust the Milestones End of Grade (elementary and middle) testing dates to gain up to three additional days of instruction before the test without adding make-up days to the calendar.
- Attendance on make-up days must be considered to determine the potential effectiveness of holding a make-up day.
- Digital learning opportunities can be counted as make-up time and could be implemented and completed from home.
With that in mind, please indicate your preference here on the following options for addressing some of the instructional time that has been missed.
With several weeks of winter weather remaining, we will reserve March 9th (Teacher Workday) as a potential day for make-up if we miss additional days due to inclement weather. We ask that parents, students and staff keep that day open in the event that we need to use it to make up any additional time lost to winter weather.
