EVSC Will Decide Snow Day Plan at Tonight’s School Board Meeting

Cancellations and delays have riddled the school year this winter, and the EVSC still has to decide on a course of action to make up for the missed days.

Students of the Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corporation have missed 7 days of school so far in the 2013/14 school year because of the nasty winter weather that has hit the Tristate area over the last few months. The state has waived two of those days, and four of them will be made up with built-in snow days, and by attending school on days like today, Presidents Day, when they would ordinarily be out. That leaves just one day that will need to be made up, assuming that there are no more days missed due to weather.

The EVSC will be hosting a brief meeting with the school board this evening to discuss a plan of action. The state has given schools a couple of options to make up snow days. One of those options involves holding the school day over an extra hour each day for six days to make up for a single full day missed. Another option the state has suggested as acceptable involves online teaching on the weekends. Hopefully, the EVSC can come to an agreement in regard to that last remaining snow day.

My only question is what’s wrong with tacking an extra day to the end of the school year? What are your thoughts on this? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
