Students attending D.C. Public Schools missed four days of classes because of the snow. School leaders are exploring various options to make up those days. D.C.P.S. will use two make up days that are already built into the schedule.
June 21st and June 22nd are the Monday and Tuesday after school was previously scheduled to end. But spokesperson Jennifer Calloway says they're exploring other options to make up missed days, including holding Saturday classes or extending the school day.
Several charter schools are trying to make up for lost time as well. Shantelle Wright with Achievement Prep Public Charter School says students don't take Presidents Day off and they plan to extend the school year.
Martha Cutts with Washington Latin Public Charter School says they're looking to use what was supposed to be a parent teacher conference day for instruction as well as possibly holding Saturday classes.
Schools are anxious to make up missed days before students take the standardized tests in April.
