The Onslow County Board of Education has agreed to significantly alter the school calendar to make up for time lost to Florence. 

The planned changes were announced at a special meeting Wednesday morning. 

The school year is expected to be extended by three days, and seven teacher workdays are set to be converted into regular school days.

Spring Break will be shortened by three days, and a number of early days will be converted into regular school days. 

In addition, 15 minutes will be added before and after school.

The calendar revisions will be voted on at the board meeting scheduled for December 4. 

In the county, 24 schools started back Wednesday, but 14 are still closed due to air quality issues.

This story will be updated as more specifics are available.
