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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
