Maryland says schools can request snow waiver

By Washington Post editors

The Maryland Board of Education has approved a plan that would allow school systems to request a waiver of up to five days for all those lost hours during snowmageddon.

State law requires students to attend school for a minimum of 180 days.

The Baltimore Sun reports that districts have to submit a plan for how they will make up the days they have lost and request a waiver for a specific number of days. School Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick must approve each district's plan.
