WCCS out of options with snow days

February 5, 2014

COLUMBIA CITY — 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 hasn’t been enough to keep up with 2014’s impossible weather.

Students haven’t had a week of school in 2014 that hasn’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.

“We are just taking each day as it comes and we’re trying to make the best decisions we can,” WCCS Superintendent Pat O’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.
