Seattle schools have lost 5 days since November to snow, ice and wind. If the days are made up at the end of the school year, the last day of school will be June 27th. The issue of what to do about the missed days has been discussed on this blog (Taking a Vote), in a Seattle Times article today (Will students make up snow days before WASL?), in a Seattle PI article yesterday (Time slips away for school kids), on a Seattle PI blog (What's a district to do?), and in every place where parents and teachers congregate around the city.
Today, while our kids were at circus class, I heard some Seattle Public Schools teachers (who are also parents) discussing a survey they took about alternative ways to make up the days missed. Now parents and guardians are being asked to take the survey at: On-line Parent/Guardian Survey.
Take a few minutes to fill out the survey and share your opinions.
