Beginning Monday, the school day for Fayette County Public Schools will be 15 minutes longer through the rest of the school year.
The board of education made the decision last month because Fayette schools missed 13 days because of winter weather.
The extended day ensures that the district meets the state minimum for instructional time of least 1,062 hours for the 2013-14 school year. It also means that barring any more cancellations, the school year will end June 6.
