Anderson County surveys parents on snow make-up days

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (WKYT) - Like school leaders across the state the members of the Anderson County School Board are trying to decide how to best make up more than a dozen missed snow days. Before that decision is made but they're getting input from parents and teachers.

Since December 1 Anderson County schools have missed fifteen days. If they don't make any changes to their calendar they'll be in class until June 9.

"It's been crazy," said parent Nathaniel Dennis. "It's like I can't get a day off work myself and they're at the house everyday. Their summer break is gonna be short, needless to say."

But if the school system makes a change to their calendar that break could be extended. Like many other school systems the board is considering cutting days from Spring Break, and going to school on Memorial Day.

Parents will have a chance to weigh in on the days their students go to class thanks to a survey on the school's website. The six options presented include going to school during Spring Break, going on Memorial Day, a combination of those or none of the above.

The superintendent says the school board will make the final decision but the results of the survey will factor in heavily.

"I think it's a great idea that they actually considered the parents perspective and ideas versus making a decision themselves," Dennis said.

The superintendent says the final decision will be made at a special school board meeting that they're still waiting to schedule.
