No More Snow Days in Pennsylvania?
Yes, it's July right now but c'mon, snow days were everything when you were a kid. You got to watch the school closing ticker in the morning on the news and when you saw your school along those closed, it was party time!
Unfortunately for kids in PA, that might not be happening anymore.
According to WGRZ, all school districts in Pennsylvania now have the option to participate in "flexible instruction days", a three-year pilot program that allows school districts to count canceled school days towards the state mandatory 180 days of instruction...by way of delivering online lesson plans to students at home.
The goal is to not have to make up the mandatory days at the end of the school year.
Any school that wishes to participate in this pilot program, has to fill out an application to the Pennsylvania Department of Education, which consists of how they will teach instruction days, how attendance will be recorded and how they will accommodate students will might not have readily available devices or internet connection at home.
How do you feel about this kind of pilot program coming to New York State.
