Superior School District implements plan to make up for lost school days

Superior, Wis. (NNCNOW.com) -- The Superior School District will make-up days lost to the weather this winter through a combination of replacing parent–teacher days with class time and extra days at the end of the school year.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed into law a measure that waives the 180 school day requirement. That allows schools to determine the best way to make up for the lost time.

April 21 was scheduled as Parent Teacher conference day, but will now be a regular school day.

The District also added two days to the end of the school year which will end on June 13th at noon.

Meanwhile, the Duluth school board adopted a policy at its last meeting to add on 12 extra minutes to each day until the end of the year to make up for the lost hours. They also added another two days to the school year.
