W. Kentucky Schools Ponder Ways To Make Up For Snow Days

(AP) - Some school superintendents in western Kentucky are mulling ideas for making up days missed due to snowy weather.

Ohio County Superintendent Soretta Ralph told The Messenger-Inquirer that she has e-mailed legislators to see if laws can be amended to allow for more flexibility in making up lost days. She said her district has missed 11 days so far and the best way to make up for it would be to add some minutes to each day.

Hancock County Superintendent Scott Lewis, whose district has missed eight days, said he would support that idea because he'd like to be able to make up the time before standardized testing takes place.

Muhlenberg County Superintendent Dale Todd says he is asking the state to postpone standardized testing for a week. Students in Muhlenberg County have missed nine days so far.
