WINTER WEATHER-OHIO SCHOOLS
School district in Ohio capital to make up extra snow days with online work, lessons sent home

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 3:03 AM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Ohio's largest school district says students will have to do work at home to make up for classes canceled during harsh winter weather.

Columbus was among many districts that exhausted their five allowable calamity days while dealing with snow, ice and extremely cold temperatures in recent months.

Lawmakers passed a measure to provide extra snow days this year and more flexibility for makeup work. One option for schools is using online lessons and work at home.

The Columbus district says it will use such assignments to account for three days of canceled classes that it typically would have had to make up. District officials say students at several schools missed one more day than the rest because of utility problems and will have an additional makeup day in late May.
