Indiana schools now officially have choices on how they will make up snow days. The Department of Education announced Thursday that schools can reschedule holidays, extend the school year without seeking a state waiver, or hold classes on Saturdays. Schools will also be allowed to extend a school day and seek a conditional waiver when they‘ve made up what equals one day of school. North Gibson School officials have tacked two days on in May, but are considering an extension of school days to increase instructional time prior to the I-STEP. South Gibson will have three Saturdays of E-Learning - February 22nd, and March 1st and 8th. East Gibson school officials are still weighing options, and in Pike County school days have already been added to the end of the year, but with the announcement of the additional options, officials are considering making changes. The state already offered unconditional waivers for two days missed during a January storm. School corporations that don‘t complete the mandated 180 days are subject to financial penalties.
