Apparently, that’s what’s being considered in Shelby County.
WMC-5 has more:
According to a letter sent by Shelby County Schools Superintendent Dr. Joris Ray to SCS teachers, the district is considering adding 15 days to the upcoming school year to make up for time lost when schools shut down early due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Highlights of the plan being considered include:
Fall break changing to a four-day weekend instead of a full week
Thanksgiving break starting Wednesday instead of the full week
The school year ending June 7 for students, nine days later than scheduled
SCS estimates the cost for the plan could be between $25 million to $30 million
