Ready for Snow
With more snow in the forecast, one school district in the higher elevations is getting ready for the next round of bad weather.
Madison County school superintendent Ron Wilcox says his district needs to be proactive due to the new state law. It requires schools to get in at least 179 days a year without starting too early or ending later than June 13th.
Madison County had traditionally started school the first week of August.
Dr. Ronald Wilcox, Madison County Schools, "we just don't know what this winter is going to bring so we ought to make up snow days when we can and be proactive so we don't have to extend our school year too far into the summer."
Madison County already made up 1 of its 3 snow days this past Saturday, and it will have school on Martin Luther King Day on Monday to make up another.
