No More Snow Days In Minnesota?
Bill Would Replace Snow Days With 'E-Learning Days'
PROCTOR, Minn.- A House committee is discussing a bill that could replace up to 5 snow days each year with electronic learning days, where students would complete school work online, from home.
Proctor High School Asst. Principal Mark Hughes believes the transition would be a smooth one for students at Proctor High School, if the bill passes, because the school already has a few online learning days under its belt.
“A lot of students have access to technology and access to learning in different environments,” said Hughes.
The bill would make it necessary for schools to provide accommodations for students without access to the internet or necessary technology for the e-learning days.
