School to submit alternative plan for snow days

BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) - The Batesville School District may be able to shorten their school year through Alternative Method of Instruction for snow days.

The Arkansas Department of Education offers this program as a way to make up a snow day by having students work from home instead of going an extra day in June.

Batesville will soon submit a five-day AMI plan to the state.

They will be using their established online courses through Edgenuity and Google Classroom to offer the instruction.

For the state board to approve a school's plan, they must submit what both students and staff would work on during the snow days.
