PW County may extend school day
Children across the area may have been happy to have all those days off due to the snowy winter, but kids in one district are learning now that they have to make some of that time up, WTOP reports.
Some school districts have received waivers, others have added a day or two to the end of the year, but Prince William County students may have to stay an extra 10 minutes each day starting Monday, May 10.
Initially, Prince William County schools officials thought they didn't need to make any changes because the system has 15 extra instruction days built into the calendar, but someone has done the math and the system will fall a bit short of the 990 hours of instruction time required by the state.
The plan is being brought to the school board for approval Wednesday.
