The guidelines for determining the Standard School Year Calendar are outlined in Regulation 1344acrobat icon.

Makeup days may be used to ensure 990 hours of instruction. Missed days, delayed openings, and early dismissals must be considered in the calculation of these hours.

State code requires school districts to make up the first five missed days of school, and then requires only every other day of missed school to be made up. Currently, FCPS has the equivalent of 13 days built into the calendar.
