Marsh to propose waiver for school days missed


Rep. B. J. Marsh, R-Springfield, plans to file a bill which would allow school districts to waive making up days missed due to the ice storm that has closed nearly all southwest Missouri schools.
In today's Springfield News-Leader, Marsh said he would propose forgiving five days for schools in counties that have been declared federal disaster areas.
Springfield schools will be out until next Tuesday at the earliest, while Joplin schools have missed two days this week, in addition to three days missed during the last storm.

Keep us posted on that Randy, thanks.

Waived? What does that mean? That they will not have to be made up on Spring Break or other "days off"? Or waived in as they will not have to go the required 174 days? Very interesting. Keep up posted.
