RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina university has canceled its fall break and pre-exam reading day to help make up for time lost due to Hurricane Florence.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reports the UNC Board of Governors approved Tuesday a waiver of 150 to 200 minutes of lost class time for the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. The university is making up about 450 to 500 minutes in other ways, including extending class time by five minutes to catch up for time lost.
UNCW Chancellor Zito Sartarelli said Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks will remain in place. Winter graduation is still scheduled for Dec. 15.
Other lost time will be made up by faculty adding online assignments, readings and face-to-face meetings. Faculty are to rewrite their syllabi to reflect the changes.
