It turns out planning to have four snow days was not enough for the Sevastopol School District. There have been seven school cancelations and one late start this school year so far. The state of Wisconsin requires that students grades 7-12 get 1,137 hours of schooling and Sevastopol would come up well short of that number without any changes to the schedule. The Sevastopol School Board will vote on how students will make up those hours at their meeting on Wednesday. Sevastopol Superintendent Kyle Luedtke will recommend to the board that they change May 10th and June 7th from “inservice days” to regular school days, and add 10 minutes to each school day. Luedtke says all other options just don’t make much sense.
The Kewaunee School District is adding 20 minutes to their school day to make up hours missed, an announcement they made on their Facebook page.
