Duluth Students Could Get Longer Days and Year

Created: 03/12/2014 10:35 AM WDIO.com

Duluth Public School students could be facing longer school days and two extra days in school due to our harsh winter.

The district has canceled classes on seven days this winter due to snow or cold.  School district administration says it had discussions with principals and teachers about what to do about the lost instructional time.

The administration is proposing lengthening the school day by 12 minutes starting March 24, adding the equivalent of 1.6 days of instructional time.  It also proposes adding school days on Friday, May 16, which is currently scheduled as a staff development day, and Friday, June 6, which is currently scheduled to be the first day of summer break.

The school board hasn't yet voted on whether to adopt the changes.  They may vote on the change next Tuesday.
