Maryland School Systems Seek Snow Day Waivers
Eleven school systems in Maryland are asking for waivers for snow days used this winter, and state education officials say others will likely make similar requests in the coming weeks. Yesterday, the state school board voted to give local systems up to a three-day waiver from the 180-day school year requirement. Under the plan, Maryland State School Superintendent Dr. Lillian Lowery will consider the waiver requests on a case-by-case basis.
