'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Chartiers Valley administrators will not have to add any days to the school calendar to make up snow days this winter.

Because the school calendar included more school days than the 180 required by the state Department of Education, no make-up days would have to be used, school officials said.

Due to lost instructional time, however, May 19 will be a school day for all students. The school board members approved the change on Feb. 25.

Middle and high school students were previously scheduled to be off on May 19.

Students in the primary and intermediate school had been scheduled to have a school day May 19.

High school graduation and students' last day are not affected, spokesperson Kara Droney said.

In addition to adjustments made to the current year, the board approved the 2014-15 calendar on Feb. 25.

Students will begin school Aug. 21. The tentative last student day will be June 4, 2015. Snow make-up days are set for June 5, 8 and 9.
