Updated 2019-2020 Calendar Due to Winter Weather

Asheville City Schools missed Tuesday, November 12th and was on a two-hour delay on Wednesday, November 13th due to Winter Weather. 

Instead of utilizing one of our assigned Inclement Weather Make-Up Days (which are listed near the bottom of the 2019-2020 Calendar), Asheville City Schools has opted to use eight “banked hours” to make-up last week’s lost instructional time. 

“Banked hours” are anything over the required 1,025 hours that are mandated by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s Calendar Laws. 

As we began the 2019-2020 school year, Asheville City Schools had 31 “banked hours.”   After the deduction of the eight hours for last week, Asheville City Schools now has 23 as well as our three remaining potential inclement weather make-up days. 

An updated 2019-2020 Traditional Calendar has been added to the district’s website and shared on social media.
