Worth a look
October 29, 2010 - Jim Smith
Considering the number of weather-related school cancelations in the Mid-Ohio Valley every winter, maybe the Mississinawa Valley School District in western Ohio's Darke County has hit on an idea with study.
When school is canceled, students will replace their snow days in class with online learning on their home computers.
The Ohio Board of Education thinks enough of the idea to take a hard look at it this winter. Officials say the test could help the state determine the future of calamity days.
Mississinawa Superintendent Lisa Wendel told The Columbus Dispatch the experience in online education will help students in college, where online classes are becoming more common.
