Making up snow days could be a thing of the past for one school corporation


ROCKPORT, Ind. (WEHT) – Thursday, Eyewitness News reported that due to construction on Spencer County High School, South Spencer County Schools would be getting off to a late start this year.

Their first day back to school was August 15.

The last day of school is May 22 and they will get all 180 days of instruction in, and the kids will still get all the normal breaks and holidays.

Eyewitness News’ Kelly Austin, talked with SCSC’s Superintendent, Dr. Richard Rutherford, to find out just how this is possible.

South Spencer County School Corporation offers an e-learning program, One-to-One, that enables students to do schoolwork assigned by their teachers on devices that are provided to them by the school.

This e-learning program makes making-up snow days a thing of the past because the kids can do their assignments sitting on the couch at home in their pajamas inside where it’s nice and warm.
