bags,' where students take extra work home at night or on the weekend. Another
day can be gained by canceling planned 2-hour delay days, which the district
has already done.
measures, plus the 4 extra the state could give, would leave the district with
13 total calamity days. With 12 already in the books and heavy snow on the way
for Wednesday morning, 13 could be the magic number to keep the end of this
school year on schedule.
"It's just been a really unusual winter. But
I'm glad that they have gotten moving. I am hoping tomorrow that that vote can
take place," said Toledo Public School Board President Lisa Sobecki.
"The fact they can actually come to a
consensus and realization that this is the most severe weather that us and
since the 1970's have been exposed to," said Superintendent Dr. Romules Durant.
Parents agree, hoping the legislature can
pass the calamity day bill Wednesday.
