WINTER WEATHER-OHIO SCHOOLS
Ohio House delays formal vote on bill to give schools more calamity days due to winter weather

The Ohio House has held off taking a formal vote on a plan to let schools take up to four additional days off this year because of the season's extreme weather.
Snow and frigid temperatures has led many districts across Ohio to exhaust their five allowable calamity days. Some have cancelled classes for 10 or more days.
Gov. John Kasich has been among those advocating adding extra snow days on a one-time basis this year.
Another proposal slated to get a Senate hearing Wednesday would excuse high school seniors from makeup days that fall after their scheduled graduation ceremonies.
