No make-up snow days needed for Chartiers Valley schools
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.
