School Make-Up Days

Schools across Indiana are struggling with make-up days caused by this winter's extreme weather.  

Some schools are considering alternate ways to get the 180 required student days in, without having to delay graduation ceremonies.

North Knox School Corporation Superintendent Darrell Bobe says classes are scheduled to finish by Graduation Night, but just barely.

He says all snow days ahve been used up and is hoping no more will be needed.

Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz has offered ideas to make up days, including extending the school day and online Saturday classes.  

If it becomes necessary, Bobe says he favors adding an hour or two to the day rather than use Saturdays.

School corporations will receive a waiver from the state for some of this missing days.
