RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – After a Wake County Public School System board meeting Tuesday, the board officially approved that all year-round schools have a “calendar day” on Election Day.
A “calendar day” means no school for students and was made possible by “bank days” already built into the school calendar, according to a WCPSS press release.
For example, a bank working day can be made up of days such as distance learning days and instructions on Saturdays, WCPSS said.
In addition, WCPSS also said that a “calendar off” day for June 19 is used to celebrate June 16.
CBS 17 previously reported the Wake County School Board’s approval of a measure to close most county schools on Election Day for the coming years, but not all — citing multi-track year-round schools. It cited test dates as a complication in the submission of all students.
Wednesday’s post didn’t say how the issue was resolved, but did say feedback from the community and staff who played a big part in approving the change.
