Duluth, Min. (NNCNOW.com) -- The Duluth School Board approved a plan on Tuesday to make up for missed school days.

The district has had to cancel school seven times this year due to heavy snow and extreme cold weather.

The approved plan replaces two staff and teacher work days with full school days.

The district will also add 12 minutes to the remaining 49 days.

School board members say the plan will make up for about three days of the seven days that have been missed.

"Twelve minutes is what you make it. It's enough time to inspire someone, it's enough to have some silent reading time, it's enough to answer some questions," said Superintendent, Bill Gronseth.

The 12 minutes will be added to the end of the school days starting March 24.
