LPCSC Announces 2014 Snow Make-Up Day Plan

La-Porte-Community-School-CorporationConsidering the number of days we have missed school this year, to date, it is necessary to adjust our calendar and, in some cases, the length of our school day, in order to meet the 180 day instructional requirement set forth by the state of Indiana. Because of the number of schools, statewide, that have had to cancel classes, the state has granted options for “make-up” time that have not been granted previously. The following plan reflects the make-up schedule for the LPCSC that will be submitted to the state for approval. In the event that additional snow days are necessary, a revised plan will be submitted.

The plan addresses the need to make up 5 school days that, as of March 10, 2014, are necessary to make up. It is important to realize that some urgency exists to begin make-up hours, considering that it is possible that additional snow days may accumulate. In designing the plan, an effort was made to avoid students having to attend classes after our June 8, 2014 graduation date. Another interest was to schedule some of the extended days, so we could use the time for ISTEP review. In cases where the daily schedule is altered, it is done so by adding one hour to the existing day, considering that 6 extra hours equates to one make-up day.

Thank you for your support, commitment, and sacrifice that will benefit our students. Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s school Principal with any questions. There is also a link on the corporation website for answers to frequently asked questions.
