Dorchester 2 to vote Thursday on June 1 makeup day

Dorchester District 2 students will likely not have to make up a school day missed earlier this year for inclement weather.

School was closed on Feb. 24.

The board will have a special meeting on Thursday and is expected to vote to forgive the day, officials said.

Officials considered changing June 1 from a teacher workday to a regular school day. Graduations in the district are set for May 30.

The district had scheduled possible make-up days on Jan. 12 and Feb. 16, but did not have any days planned later in the year.

Berkeley County School District changed a teacher workday on May 20 to a regular school day and Charleston County students went to school on March 27 to make up for the missed day.

On May 7, Gov. Nikki Haley signed a bill to allow school boards to waive up to three make-up days when designated make-up days are used or no longer available.

A district spokesperson on Tuesday had said an announcement on the decision would be made Wednesday.
