Board to discuss how schools will make up snow days

Agenda highlights ¢ 7 p.m. today ¢ District headquarters, 110 McDonald Drive

February 23, 2004


Bottom line

The board will consider when elementary students should make up their third snow day of the year.


Schools have closed because of inclement weather three times this year. Junior high and senior high students still will attend more than the mandated 1,116 hours, but elementary students will be short by 45 minutes. District staff has recommended students either attend a half day on teachers' last contract day, May 24, or have one minute added to their school day from March 1 to May 21 to make up the difference.
