Why don't they just plan the school year to for 185 days and if they don't use the snow days then they get out earlier. I would think that would be so much simplier. What's up with all the in-service days and workdays. We don't get days at our jobs to plan and prepare for up coming events. You do it as you go along. Com'on. this year many families got hosed on thier vacations with thier kids because they planned their vacations this coming up week of memorial day, but due to a power outage that no one had any controll over and a couple snow days the school year was extended 2 more days and then they turned around and scheduled finals those days so kids would have to come. Thanks for hosing all of us families. Now our kids have to come back the week after the first week of June and take finals. Because the school corporation can't plan correctly. We live in the midwest there is going to be snow days be alittle wiser and plan for more than less doofuses!

Perhaps you should read the laws and teacher contracts. This was not done on a whim... there are laws that must be followed
