BCPS Hurricane Make-Up Days Are January 12 and April 20, 2023

BCPS Hurricane Make-Up Days Are January 12 and April 20, 2023

Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) will utilize two previously scheduled early release days – Thursday, January 12, 2023, and Thursday, April 20, 2023 – as make-up days following Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Nicole. District schools will implement full-day schedules on those two days.  

In addition, for high school schedules only, mid-term testing scheduled for December 20 – 23 (which typically allows for early dismissal), will also be converted to full-day schedules. The changes to the two early release dates and the high school mid-term testing dates will satisfy the state’s requirement for instructional hours.  

Potential hurricane make-up days were planned for and included in the 2022/23 school year calendar. The dates were selected in consideration of students, families and staff commitments for vacations and holidays.
