Adair County Schools will have missed 8 snow days after today
Next big decision for schools: How to change the School Calendar to make up for lost weather days, build a contingency cushion for possible springtime cancellations later in spring.
School Districts in the area will be coping with making up snow days in a big way this year. With today's cancellation of classes, Superintendent Allen Reed said, Adair County will have missed eight days of school. That's not one week and one day. In school terms, it is two days short of two weeks.
Today's cancellation may or may not be the end of weather cancellations.
Already, Russell County has announced cancellation for tomorrow, Tue 24 Feb 2015. A look at the National weather forecast for the rest of the week makes the outlook each day, an iffy situation.Mr. Reed and Transportation Director David Jones are it taking it one day at a time. "He (Mr. Jones) will be checking county roads today," he said, "and we'll have a decision on Tuesday as soon as possible."
Mr. Reed said the school calendar will have to be changed significantly. He wouldn't venture a guess as to how this will be done, but said that elimination or shortening Spring Break is a first option. "Many districts have already eliminated Spring Breaks," he said. School days could be lengthened as another option, and Saturday classes might be needed. He added that the school year has to end by June 12, by state law. "We'll need to take some decisive action soon," he said. "We've need to face tornado season," and heavy spring rains can cause school cancellations," as well. - ED WAGGENER
