A proposal at the state house would allow Maine school departments to make up snow days in new ways.¬†According to “An Act To Give Maine Schools Additional Options To Make Up Missed School Days,” the bill would add language to the state law to allow schools make up snow days with packets of homework or develop plans to make up days under state guidance.¬†The homework that is meant to cover a snow day is sometimes referred to as a blizzard bag. According to the Department of Education, current law allows schools to make up missed school days by rescheduling the day, postponing the end of the school year, holding weekend classes and adding hours to the school day.
