Public schools are not yet permitted under New Jersey regulations to hold virtual classes as official make-ups to snow days. However, St. John Vianney — because it is private — is one of a handful of schools leading the way in the new online learning initiative, where students can watch instruction, hand in homework, and engage in class discussion with their Holmdel-based high school teachers. But many public schools across the state are hoping to emulate the model in the future. As technology makes virtual classrooms possible, the state Department of Education is reconsidering the rule that defines instructional days as having students and teachers in the same room.
