DORCHESTER CO., Md. - The State Superintendent has waived school days for one local county, due to bad weather.
Dorchester County Public Schools says Dr. Lillian Lowery, State Superintendent of Schools, has approved their waiver of five inclement weather days, that were missed this winter.
In all, the schools were closed for thirteen days, but they adjusted the school calendar, by using five built-in bad weather days, opening schools on a day they were set to be closed, and adding two days onto the end of the school year.
This enabled the school system to ask for only five days to be waived, which was granted. The last day of school for students will now be June 12th, 2014.
