Makeup days

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Youngstown City Schools will make up four days lost due to winter weather by extending the length of school days and schoolwork that students will complete at home during the month of May.

Youngstown Schools used all available days off due to the snow and frigid temps. The Ohio Senate approved House Bill 416 back on February 26th, giving school districts the ability to make up four days for the school year.

That bill also excuses seniors from needing to makeup days after graduation.

During the month of May, students will receive “blizzard bags” containing homework to be completed and submitted within two weeks to make up the first two calamity days.

The school day will be extended 15 minutes before the regular day begins and 15 minutes after the regular day ends to cover the last two calamity days.

The extra 15 minutes at the beginning of the school day will not change the transportation schedule for those riding the bus, but those coming by car will have to come 15 minutes early. The extra 15 minutes at the end of the day will delay the schedule by 15 minutes for everyone.

There will not be a calamity make-up day on Memorial Day…May 26th.

For more information see the Youngstown City Schools website.
