Our school district has been out since the Friday before the storm, all this week, and now we'll be out 1/2 of next week. Some schools and districts wont even be able to start then! The districts are all debating how to make up the lost time. Some people just want to get a waiver (which is allowed by the state) to excuse most of the days, others want to extend the school day to make up the time, and still others want to tack the days on to the end of the year (or shorten Spring Break). My school operates on an accelerated block, so we have a term finishing up in 3 weeks, one of which is the TAKS retesting week and another is for final exams. So really we're down to 1 1/2 week left of instruction! What do you guys think? Should we make up the time after school? Excuse it? Add days at the end?
