Austin School Board to approve make-up dayPublished 4:53pm Saturday, March 8, 2014
The Austin Public Schools board is set to change next Wednesday, March 12, from a half day to a full day of school.
The board will formally approve the calendar change during its school board meeting at 5:30 p.m. Monday, March 10.
Austin has had five snow days thus far this school year.
Though the district isn’t in danger of running under state-mandated class time, the district schedules three snow days in teachers’ contracts.
Board members will also approve the district’s integration plan and budget for the 2014-2015 school year.
