Some central Ind. school districts to use tech to make up snow days

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Technology is now an option for Indiana school districts looking to make up a slew of snow days.

The Maconaquah school district in north central Indiana is part of pilot program where all students get a tablet or laptop. The state gave them four "e-learning days" -- and they've just learned they can count as a snow day.

"Thirteen snow days is unheard of, and this really gives us an avenue," said Kelly McPike, Maconaquah Elementary Principal. "Five years ago, I don't think anybody even thought this would be possible."

Other districts across the state can apply for technology classes to be held on Saturdays to make up for canceled classes. Districts can also apply for one additional hour of instruction for six days to make up for one missed day.
