Wednesday was a snow day, but still a school day, for many metro Atlanta students.
Some school districts, such as Gwinnett and Forsyth, use online lesson plans and assignments for students to avoid missing a snow day, a practice they’ve used for a few years, to the disappointment of some students. Making up days during scheduled student breaks can interfere with graduation schedules and planned family vacations. With the technology already in place and with teachers, students and support staff prepared, the schools decided to give Digital Learning Days a try. The preliminary reports showed that there were no major issues, but Associate Superintendent Jonathan Patterson is set to give a full report at the school board work session Thursday.
