Greenville ISD seeking weather waiver from TEA

GREENVILLE — The Greenville Independent School District is hoping state educators will accept its note for why it missed class earlier this month.

The Greenville ISD is seeking a waiver from the Texas Education Agency, which if approved would mean the district would not have to add any days onto the end of this year’s school calendar.

The board is scheduled to vote to formally ask for the waiver as part of Tuesday’s regular agenda, starting at 6 p.m. in the Wesley Martin Administration Building, 4004 Moulton Street.

Students will be attending classes later this semester, on two days which had been reserved in the event of bad weather.

Campuses in the Greenville ISD were closed March 3, following the latest coating of ice and snow.

It was the third time this school year in which the weather forced the cancelling of classes. The other two were on December 6 and February 6.

Students can now plan on attending classes on April 18 and May 23, the two  bad weather make-up days included in the schedule.

The district is now asking the TEA for a waiver for March 3. District officials said the waivers are usually granted in the event of weather-related events.
