More Than 1/2 Of Md. Counties Reach Snow Day Limit

Posted: Updated:

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - The state Department of Education says more than half of Maryland's 24 school districts have reached or exceeded their allocated snow days this season.
 
The agency said Thursday that Allegany, Carroll, Charles, Garrett, Montgomery, Queen Anne's, St. Mary's, Somerset, and Worcester counties have gone beyond their built-in snow days. Frederick County made a similar announcement Wednesday, putting at least 10 districts over the limit.
 
Anne Arundel, Calvert, Howard and Prince George's counties and Baltimore City Public Schools say they've used all the snow days built into their calendars.
 
Districts that exceed their limit can look for ways to make up the excess days, such as extending the school year. They also can seek waivers from the state Board of Education from the requirement to have 180 days of instruction.
