No More Snow Days? It Could Happen In Minnesota
ST. PAUL (AP) - Minnesota lawmakers are considering legislation that could spell the end for snow days. A House committee today (Thursday) will discuss a bill that could replace up to five snow days each year with ``e-learning days.''
Students would get on a laptop or tablet at home and follow along with online lessons on school days that would otherwise have been cancelled.
Like a snow day, parents would be alerted to the at-home learning day at least two hours before the start of school and teachers would be available throughout the day to answer students' questions.
