What will happen if school is canceled because of a big snow when Lawrence has no more makeup days on the school calendar?
The Lawrence school district has used its two allotted makeup days for this school year. "The board would need to have a discussion on how to make up the instructional time," said Julie Boyle, communications director for the district. The state requires 1,116 hours in a school year, so the board has some options on how to arrive at those hours, Boyle said. "They could decide to add minutes to the school days. They could decide to add extra days to the school year. It's really up to the board," Boyle said.
