BOE restores Memorial Day holiday to school calendar

Written by  Monday, 14 April 2014 10:01

  The Bulloch County Board of Education reversed itself and restored Memorial Day, 2015, as a holiday.  Thursday the board accepted Superintendent Charles Wilson’s amendment to restore the holiday. 


  Under a previous survey chosen by teachers and other school employees Memorial Day would have been a regular school day but after protests from veterans groups and others the decision was reversed.  Wilson took responsibility for what he called an oversight in the school calendar.


  The change to next year’s school calendar adds Friday, July 25, 2014 as a planning day for teachers and staff.   As a result Bulloch County students will attend class for 179 days next school year instead of the usual 180.


  Wilson’s recommendation changing the 2014-15 school calendar was unanimously approved by the board.


  Since the 2013-14 school year ends the Friday before Memorial Day the current school calendar was not affected.
