Central York School District closed for the wintry weather Tuesday, but students didn’t miss any lessons.
The district is changing how it handles snow days. Flexible instructional days allow students and teachers to work from home.
The district can use cyber snow days, recently approved by the Department of Education, up to five times a year. Cyber days count as a day in the classroom, so students don’t have to make them up at the end of the year.
“It’s pretty cool,” Central York sophomore Julia Warner said. “My friends in other school districts, they’re like, what is that? That’s confusing. I say no, it’s awesome. I get to wake up late and just do the same work you do at school.”
Central York students are provided with the technology to get their work done. High school students take home MacBooks and middle schoolers get an iPad.
