School District Keeping Eye On Lost Days

For many school districts around the state, this the third consecutive day of no class as a result of the weekend blizzard.  Couple that with days lost last fall to Superstorm Sandy and local school officials are becoming concerned about how they’ll make up all that time.

Robert Rader, the executive director of the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education, says some districts are mulling extending their school years.

There has also been talk from others about using winter and spring vacations to help make up the lost days.  Rader says at least one district has eliminated most of its April break in order to get the required 180 days.

In a worse-case scenario towns can apply for a waiver but rader says they are rarely granted.
