BCS reacts to new Blizzard Bags for students (Audio included)

This year the state mandated a new rule for schools all over Ohio.

After five calamity days, schools must put assignments online for students to make up on their days off. They are called Blizzard Bags.

Students must go to a site called moodle and look up their course and teacher to find their make-up work. The schools have to give students 2 weeks to complete and turn in the assignment.

Many students complain that the work they need to do for these classes is harder than what they would get if they just went to school. Also, many teachers complain that the work they have to put up doesn't match what the students are learning about at that time in the school year.

Listen to Melanie Moon state why she is against Blizzard Bags.

Listen to teacher Garth McLoed give his opinion on the Blizzard Bags.

Next year schools won't even have calamity days but will have an hour-based schedule instead. This means that there are so many hours a school can have off in a year, so delays will count for hours missed of school.

The weather forecast could mean more Blizzard Bags for students.
