Topeka Public Schools out of snow days; two options for making them up

News

Topeka Public Schools are considering how to make up for lost time now that they’re going over their reserved snow days.

USD 501 has shut down school several times during the fall and spring semesters due to a series of winter weather in northeast Kansas. Superintendent Tiffany Anderson said the district has about six hours of leftover snow day time. With Tuesday’s closing, they will bleed into actual school days. Anderson has said the district is planning ahead to make up for any lost school time. Two methods to solve these include:

  • Adding extra minutes to existing school days.
  • Using built-in off days saved for events like staff training as regular class time.

KSNT wants to hear Topeka’s opinion on which approach to use.
