City schools detail snow day make-up plan

Published: Tue, April 8, 2014 @ 8:39 p.m.


City school students will make up the days missed due to cold and snow through a combination of a lengthened school day and enrichment lessons for students to do at home.

The city schools were closed for nine days this past winter because of the conditions and by law, four of those days must be made up.

Karen Green, assistant superintendent of human resources, said the administration’s plan was approved by the teachers’ union which must, by contract, sign off on a change to the school day or year.

From May 1-30, the school day will begin 15 minutes early and end 15 minutes late to make up two of the missed days. For Youngstown Early College students, who operate on a different schedule than the rest of the schools, the change will run from April 14 through May 16.

The other two days will be made up using “blizzard bags,” or paper copies of enrichment lessons created by each student’s licensed teachers. The lessons are equal to or greater than the amount of instructional time the student would receive for two school days. The work is to be completed at home.

The law reads a district must make up four days before they can use the four additional snow days. Thus, a school that has been off 13 days would only make up four days beyond the first five days.

By the way czar green didn't like what they union voted for the first time which was four blizzard bags and no extra time.
