Calhoun schools will be in session April 22 - 25, originally scheduled for the annual spring break. There is consolation with a four-day Easter weekend, with April 18 and 21 (Friday and Monday) as days off.

Because of the unscheduled days off, report cards will be issued Wednesday, March 5 (rather than the original date of February 26). The grading period will end February 28.

Meanwhile, there may be some relief in sight for students losing their days off.

A new bill that passed the House today would allow the state school superintendent to grant exceptions to school scheduling provisions.

It would give counties the option of trying to make up for lost school days or, in the case of heavy storms and "acts of God," eliminating the requirement for 180 school days.

County school boards would have to get the approval of the state superintendent.

The House has put the legislation on the fast track, trying to get the bill passed quickly so counties could use it before the end of this school year.
