Lost Instruction Time Causing Headache For Schools
TONY STINNETT, Courier Co-Editor
The days are there.
"We have several days in the calender that we could use to make up snow days if we had to do that," Parker said. "You don't want to have to do that, but we could. You do start to get a little cautious (when the built-in days are almost diminished) but there is just no way all the students could get to their schools (last week)."
Although dates are available to assure all required school days are fulfilled, time still is of the essence in regard to TCAP testing. Parker said lost instruction time due to the inclement weather is the bigger headache.
"We want as many days as possible before TCAP testing and this cuts into that," Parker said. "You become concerned with missing so many days of instruction."
TCAP testing takes place April 12-19.
The Cannon County Spelling Bee has been moved to Feb. 3 at East Side Elementary at 6 p.m.
