2018 has begun, but not for a lot of schools. With the extremely low temperatures, schools across Northeast Ohio have canceled classes for students, thus extending their winter breaks. But how will these dates be made up?
David James, superintendent of Akron Public Schools, talked to the Ray Horner Morning Show about schools’ protocol in calling off classes. In the past, the local districts had five allotted days to play with, but now high school students must have 1,001 hours to complete.
James says if Akron Public Schools has to miss more than the given calamity days due to weather or power outages, students will have to make up the time either after the school year or during spring break.
