SHEFFIELD, Ala. (WAFF) - Students at Sheffield City Schools will have two fewer school days for the 2022-2023 school year, according to our news partners at the Times Daily.

Instead of the 180 days of class students had this year, they will now have 178, These two days will allow for two additional professional development days.

Keith Davis, superintendent of the school system, said the extra days will allow teachers and staff to review strategies and make adjustments for students still falling behind in class due to the pandemic.

“We felt strongly that there needed to be more opportunities for teachers to study data and make adjustments through the year for the students,” he told the Times Daily. “We still have a long road ahead of us in dealing with the academic setbacks of the past year-and-a-half.”
