Snow days could impact summer schedule for area schools

We're hoping yesterday's storm is the last snowfall we've seen until next winter.

But the impact of all this will reach into the summer. All our local school districts surpassed the number of snow days built into their calendar.

This includes Anne Arundel County, which used nine snow days with only four built in to the schedule. The district applied for a waiver from the state and is waiting on the results.

As it stands now, Anne Arundel would end the school year on June 25. In Baltimore City, nine snow days were used with five built in to the schedule.

Baltimore City students will now be in class on April 4, which was supposed to be a teacher work day.

Carroll County used 12 snow days, with only five built in, and without a waiver, the school year there would end on June. 13. Harford County used 11 days with 7 built in and intends to apply for a waiver while Howard County used nine days and plans to take similar action.

Right now, the last day in Howard County is set for June 18.

Also, Baltimore County has used nine snow days, with seven built into the schedule. Students there are already set to go to school on March 31; a day originally intended to be a professional study day for teachers.
