Pa. district may extend year if threats continue

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — School officials in Scranton say they will consider lengthening the school day or extending the year further in to June if a rash of bomb threats continues and keeps eating away at class time.

Scranton School District officials are trying to find ways to stop the threats. Superintendent William King says two students have been expelled and are facing charges in two cases. No explosive devices have been found.

Acting police Chief Carl Graziano says the threat of having to make up the missed instructional time in June may be enough to stop the problem.
