Broken Arrow Schools Make Decision on Snow Day Make Up

Posted: Updated:

Broken Arrow school officials announced their plans make up school days missed during a winter storm last week.

Administrators made the decision during a regularly scheduled school board meeting Monday evening. This was after much of the area was hit by snow leaving classrooms empty across the Tulsa metro.

According to a report from the Broken Arrow Ledger, the school day will be extended by 15 minutes beginning March 24. This will last through May 30.

Students who go to school at one of the Early Childhood Centers will be exempt.

Before this year's winter season Broken Arrow Public Schools had four snow days built into the school year. Three extra days were used, according to the Broken Arrow Ledger's report.

Chief Financial Officer Dwayne Thompson said in the last few weeks several calculations and configurations were discussed in an effort to make up the instruction time in a way that was best for the students and the staff.

"If we move them all 15 minutes, we're making sure we have ample time," Thompson said.
