I am curious if the State is considering pushing back MCAS testing dates due to the number of snow days this winter and the missed classroom time that has resulted? – Josh, Orleans
School has been canceled in Methuen for Monday and Tuesday due to the amount of snow that has piled up over the last few weeks.
A top Massachusetts school official is telling local educators they have options for making up snow days and it’s too early for talk about waiving the requirement that schools have at least 180 days of classes a year.
The snow poses a special challenge for local schools, before, during and after it falls.
Like the snow, days off for schools are beginning to pile up, and that has many cities and towns considering drastic measures.
It’s the last week of January, and Boston public schools are tagging on another snow day to its tally.
