Detroit Schools Must Make Up 3-10 Days Of Classes

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Public school students in Detroit will need to make up between three and 10 days of classes due to the harsh winter and repeated problems with the city's municipal power system.

The Detroit Public Schools announced Wednesday that schools will be required to make up the days to meet state requirements, extending the school year.

Superintendent of Academics Karen Ridgeway says the district "exhausted all avenues" to minimize the number of days needed beyond the originally scheduled end of the school year. Letters have been provided to parents with details on individual schools.

The extensions also affect the summer school schedule.

Snow and cold weather shut schools a number of times. Storms also caused some power outages, but officials say the unstable power system was a factor.
