Boston, MANov. 13, 2017 – As technology evolves so does the concept of snow days. Gone are the days of sleeping in and cartoon marathons. Now, when the weather gets bad and schools close, the learning turns online with learning management systems providing students with some type of instruction to compensate for missed classroom time.In fact, experts say the use ofonline learning as a remedy to the loss of class time on snow days is growing nationally as more school systems look for ways to continue learning without extending their school calendars. Several northern states, including Pennsylvania and Ohio, allow the online-snow day replacement. But implementing the virtual systems must be done carefully and with proper planning.

To learn new approaches to keep the learning going even on days of inclement weather, educators can join Rachel Riggio on Thursday, November 16 at 1 PM ET for “Battling Bad Weather: Strategies for Ensuring Continuity of Learning.”

During this one-hour webinar, Rachel will share ways in which district leaders and teachers can prepare for winter weather and ensure their students will benefit from continuity of learning throughout the winter months. Learn best practices for planning for bad weather and providing support to teachers, parents and students. Hear about virtual learning days and how one Georgia district successfully implements them during storms.
