Pennsylvania Students May Be Forced To Do Schoolwork on Snow Days
A new bill has been signed by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf that gives schools permission to make students do schoolwork at home if the weather stops them from being able to physically attend school.
Given it is only July, the chance of seeing snow on the ground anytime soon is slim to none, but Pennsylvania lawmakers are thinking well in advance.
The Board of Education will provide lesson plans on the days that were once known as snow days, now being referred to as flex days. Basically, because of the “flexibility” that comes along with working from home.
PhillyMag reports that since these “flex days” would count toward the mandated number of school days, attendance would still have to be taken.
