School snow days may someday melt away as online learning catches on. But not before a number of hurdles have been cleared, including lack of home Internet access for many children. One Ohio district, with approval from the Ohio Department of Education (ODE), has launched a one-year pilot program this year to see how it could provide online assignments to snowbound students as a way to satisfy the requirements of a school day. In Kentucky, the education department is planning its own pilot program, as early as next year, asking 15 to 20 school districts to participate. Those districts in eastern and central Kentucky typically miss up to three weeks of school a year due to inclement weather.
