COLUMBIA CITY â€” With all the built-in make-ups days gone, Whitley County Consolidated Schools are forced to extend the school year into the summer.
Though officials built in four make-up days into the schedule, it hasnâ€™t been enough to keep up with 2014â€™s impossible weather.
Students havenâ€™t had a week of school in 2014 that hasnâ€™t had a cancellation or delay. With more weather moving into the area this week and more on the way this weekend, more school cancellations are unavoidable.
â€śWe are just taking each day as it comes and weâ€™re trying to make the best decisions we can,â€ť WCCS Superintendent Pat Oâ€™Connor said.
With the amount of snow days, officials are soon to have to decide more than just what to do with classes when the weather is bad, but what to do with graduation this summer.
