The School District of Palm Beach County is proposing to take three previously scheduled professional development days for teachers and use them as make-up days for Hurricane Irma, the school district said.

These days – Oct. 16, Nov. 3 and Jan. 8, 2018 – will be presented to the school board for approval at Wednesday’s regular board meeting.

The district said it made the decision to make up the days after consulting with an advisory group of principals, teachers and other community stakeholders.

All Palm Beach County schools were closed seven school days to prepare for and clean up after Irma.

Two of the days were waived by Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart. The district will seek a waiver from Commissioner Stewart and the State Board of Education for the additional two school days lost to Irma.
