BOE talks online classes to cover snow days

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:39 am


The Monongalia County Schools Board of Education (BOE) has started working on the calendar for the 2016-’17 school year. The board reviewed details of its annual calendar survey used to gauge the opinions of students’ parents during its Jan. 19 night meeting. One notion being considered for next year is using online lessons to make up for up to five days of missed classes. The survey is asking parents if they would support this measure and if they could provide home Internet to make this happen. Superintendent Frank Devono said if this comes to pass, students would not have to make up a snow day if it was covered via online content. Parental and student feedback plus any changes in state policy by the next school year would factor into whether or not online lessons will be used to make up snow days.
