Schools exempt from making up days missed

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Mississippi schools forced to close due to recent flooding or tornadoes will not have to make up missed days.

A new state law exempts school districts from the 180 school day minimum in the event of extreme weather.

According to The Clarion-Ledger, Superintendent Tom Burnham says some students were taking standardized tests during that time. He says those districts have made accommodations and rescheduled testing.
