Do a lot of families blow off the make up days? My kids say they just watch movies and don't get anything done on make up days anyway because of the low attendance. Just wondering.

I'm a high school teacher in Granville County. Last year when we did a Saturday make-up day we had about 50% attendance. Due to attendance I personally prefer the make-up days to be closer to exams so that I can use the day as a review instead of a teaching day.

You are probably referring to the Saturday year-round makeup days (and your kids are correct), but this truly becomes a problem in high school. The traditional schedule makeup days are February 15 and June 10. The first makeup day will be used effectively, but hs students are essentially losing 2 full days of instruction with the June 10 makeup day due to block scheduling. Tacking on a day at the end of the year is simply worthless.

The exam schedule will just be moved forward a day. The (last - depending on school) testing makeup day will likely be June 10 instead of June 9.

So don't worry - no days of instruction will be lost in high school.

It's still problematic with AP exams. These dates are set. But, the whole block schedule is a problem for AP courses . . . sorry, another topic for another day.
