N-B Feedback: Coping with cancellations

School leaders in Wells County say they will or expect to delay the ISTEP test as students and teachers catch up and cope with cancellations, and they are also awaiting to hear from the Indiana Department of Education, which said it will soon outline ways for schools to replace canceled days. 

For instance, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz told the Indianapolis Star that a district could add an additional hour to six school days to make up for one lost day. Schools with the technology could provide weekend instruction over the Internet.
