I'm sitting here thinking how the Iowa winter has taken so much time away from school. The ice storms, the wind and the snow has accumulated to 7 snow days from school. Luckily we have 2 "built in" days at the end of the year...now we just need to find 5 other days on our calendar!
Working with 1-1 computer access, has allowed the administrators to poll the students about how they want to make up their "time". Do they want to lengthen the school day, add days to the end of the year, make up a day on a Saturday or perhaps take time from Spring Break?
I am looking forward to seeing the response from the students...as it will be interesting to see if they agree with my thoughts???
I, myself, would like to lengthen the school day....an extra hour to each day wouldn't be so bad! :) It would save the district money actually....the buses would not have to run extra days...the cooks wouldn't have to cook an extra lunch...and think of the money saved from heating the place!!
Anyway, it will be interesting to see the outcome of the poll! I am hoping Spring comes soon!
