Rain Cloud, Text: Waiver Requested

Waiver Requested for February 11 Weather Day

  • February 13, 2020

    In a meeting of the Tuscaloosa County Board of Education on February 13, the Board authorized Superintendent Dr. Walter Davie to submit a wavier with the Alabama Department of Education. This wavier requests the Tuscaloosa County School System not be required to make up the day missed due to weather conditions on Tuesday, February 11. There are enough hours built into the TCSS school calendar that if one day must be missed, there are still enough hours left to meet the state requirement of 1,080 instructional hours within a year. TCSS will update you on the outcome of the request once the State responds, which is usually within a week. In the event that the day must be made up, it would be later in the school year. Students will still be out of school on Monday, February 17, as outlined in the TCSS Academic Calendar.
