Teachers Preparing Students For State Testing Despite Snow Days

With all this snow comes more school cancellations, but snow days don't change state testing deadlines or the goals teachers have for their students. Now many officials are trying to figure out how to catch up on all those lessons.

Students in Knott County have already missed 14 days this school year, many because of snow. At Hindman Elementary, teachers send projects home when snow is likely so students can continue learning and retain more information.

"The snow packet is filled with items that will be graded, items that will be placed in the grade book that students can practice on," said Hindman Elementary Principal Carole Combs.

Hindman Elementary also uses an online study program and Combs say it doesn't take long to get students back on track when school resumes. Combs says that helps them stay on target for state deadlines in April.
