A Flexible Instructional Day (FID) is a program available to public school entities to be used as an alternative approach to delivering instruction if a circumstance arises that prevents instruction in a customary manner.
While public school entities are expected to build make-up days into their local school calendars, FID programs can support the public school entities in cases when circumstances prevent the delivery of instruction in its customary manner or location for any of the following reasons: an epidemic, a hazardous weather condition, a law enforcement emergency, the inoperability of school buses or other equipment necessary to the public school entity's operation, damage to a school building, or a temporary circumstance rendering any portion of a school building unfit or unsafe for use. With the exception of the 2019-20 school year, if a public school entity is approved to implement a FID program, the number of FIDs instituted may not exceed five (5) days per school year.
Daniel Boone Area School FID(s) are primary used in lieu of days off for inclement weather (i.e. snow days). Students will participate in synchronous instruction via the virtual instruction platform. The program will follow the regular school day schedule. If the Superintendent of Schools calls for a modified school day, students will follow the modified school schedule ( i.e. 2-hour delay schedule)
