OKLAHOMA CITY – After the recent tornadoes there has been a lot of talk about how to keep school children safe.
Many began discussing the possibility of having much like snow days, tornado days.
We talked to the State Department of Education’s Sherry Fair.
She said districts are in charge of their own calendars.
“The only thing we require is as a state is that they have 180 instructional days or 1,080 instructional hours,” she said. “So the extra days they build into the calendar are at their discretion and can be used at their discretion.”
Fair said high risk weather days can be tricky when it comes to canceling school.
