Metro Schools expands school days

In order to make up two snow days, Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) will be expanding the school day.  The school day will be expanded by 30 minutes so that MNPS won't have to tack extra days onto the school calendar this summer. 

In order to give parents and teachers time to prepare for the longer days, the expanded schedule won't start until March 8th.  The expanded schedule will run through April 28th.  MNPS will run at normal schedule for TCAP testing week, April 18 - 23.

According to the Tennessean, MNPS factors 5 snow days into each year's schedule.  This winter's unusually high amount of snowfall caused schools to be closed for 7 days, two more than had been scheduled for.
