As winter approaches, virtual school replaces snow days in some districts
from The Hechinger Report
In the Owsley County School District in Kentucky, each winter there are more than 30 days when there’s too much snow to get students to school safely. So the district, located in a rural area south of the Daniel Boone National Forest, pioneered virtual school in the winter several years ago, getting students to hang up sleds and log online for classes on snow days. More schools around the country are considering the options for virtual school when teachers or students cannot get to school.
