TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Toledo Public School is canceling several scheduled two-hour delays because of the weather.
The district says in an effort to make up for 11 snow days, it will now hold a full day of classes on Feb. 19, March 26, April 9 and May 14. The district had originally scheduled two-hour delays for each of those days. This adds eight hours of class time.
The delayed start for elementary school students on March 21 will still take place. That delay is for elementary students only; high schools will follow their regular schedule on that day.
This will not offset any possible additional school days in June, but TPS leaders feel it is still important to get the students back on track in the classroom. This week was actually the first time since before Christmas that TPS had a full, uninterrupted week of school.
"We're losing the opportunity to do meaningful professional development, which has helped us, in terms of making the successes that we have. However, due to the fact that the weather extreme and so severe, we think that it's worth to get the students back in their seats and receive that instruction," said Jim Gault, TPS executive transformational leader of curriculum and instruction.
Administrators are using "Blizzard Bags" during spring break to make up for three missed days, and are hoping state officials vote to give school districts four additional calamity days.
Many area school districts are changing district schedules because of the brutal winter. The Ohio House of Representatives has yet to vote on a proposed measure to give districts more calamity days.
