HT-N:  Henderson County to make up snow days at end of school year

The Hendersonville Times-News reported Tuesday that the Henderson County School Board decided Monday to extend the school year one week in order to make up for the snow days earlier this winter.

According to Superintendent David Jones, the extension allows for the school system to keep its original dates for spring break and prevents students from having to go in on Memorial Day and on Saturdays.

School administrators, a teaching advisory committee and surveys involving parents were some of the factors that went into the decision.

Board member Mary Louise Corn agreed with the set revisions, but also pointed out that teachers will now have just one paid day to close down the schools at the end of the year.
