MI BOE: Add make-up days, not minutes

Posted: Updated:

If schools in Michigan have to make up snow days, they can add minutes instead of days.

However, in a unanimous decision, the Michigan Board of Education is urging districts to go for full-day replacements instead of extending the time of remaining days in the academic year.

It posted this statement online:

"Full replacement days offer every student the full extent of quality instruction that they missed when the school was closed.

"This method allows teachers to complete their full lesson plans with integrity and provide students with the appropriate depth of instruction they need to meet their instructional goals for every class."

Starting this fall, Ohio also will start a policy similar to the one in Michigan, allowing districts to make up minutes instead of days.
