Department Says School Calendars Are On Track
The winter’s snow has taken its toll on school systems around the state which have been forced to cancel classes.
A survey by the state Department of Education finds most districts have cancelled classes for seven full days this academic year, though the high is eleven.
School districts must provide each student with a minimum of 180 days and 900 hours of instruction before June 30. The department says all districts appear to be on track to meet the requirement — if the weather cooperates.
