‘Snow days’ go online in proposed SPS calendar for next year

Springfield Public Schools plans to take advantage of new state flexibility to change how snow days are made up during the 2021-21 year.

A proposed calendar for next year calls for the first three days canceled for inclement weather to be made up, in person, at the end of the school year. Any additional days will go virtual, negating a need for any make-up.

“We all love a snow day and students love a snow day, generally, one or two,” said Jason “J” Anderson, who oversees the annual calendar process. “But, after four or so and we have to start making them up, that could elongate the school year, make things challenging for child care and other services.”

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education allows districts to flip to alternative methods of instruction, or AMI, when buildings are closed.
