Schools could be allowed option on makeup days

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The state school superintendent says school districts could make up some snow days by having longer school days or having online instruction on a Saturday.

State superintendent Glenda Ritz says she will soon outline options for districts across the state that have canceled numerous days this winter because of heavy snow and extreme cold.

Ritz tells The Indianapolis Star that a district could add an additional hour to six school days to make up for one lost day. Schools with the proper technology could provide weekend instruction over the Internet.

Ritz says districts would need to seek a waiver from the Department of Education from the state’s requirement of 180 school days.
