School Make – Up Days in Limbo

mc school logoMUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (2/13/14) – Muhlenberg County School Superintendent Randy McCarty told SurfKY News all he can do is play the waiting game.

McCarty said the state's Commissioner of Education, Terry Holliday is the one trying to deal with this problem waiting for the snow to melt.

"We are kind of on hold right now until the commissioner tells us whether we'll be allowed to add minutes to school days or exactly what we can do," McCarty said. "Right now we're just hoping we don't miss any more days. Fifteen days is more than enough."

McCarty said that right now the school system is approved through June 4. "But we've missed a couple of days past that. We really can't do anything until the commissioner tells us what we can do as far as adding minutes to days. We are pretty much in limbo land right now, " he said.

McCarty said there is a big problem with adding minutes.

"If we add 15 minutes to the day, what happens is you haven't really lost time, but you're not getting the same amount of instructional time for each child. Adding three or four minutes isn't going to make up for the a full day for each student," McCarty said.

McCarty said there's really nothing anyone can do until the weather breaks.

"I would assume the commissioner is getting a lot of pressure from Fayette  and Jefferson County. Those poor people are going to be in school all summer long, the way things are looking right now," McCarty said.
