Local High School Trying Cyber Classes To Make Up Snow Day

Local High School Trying Cyber Classes To Make Up Snow Day

Posted: Updated:
UPPER DARBY, Pa. -

This grabbed our attention this morning! Obviously there have been so many snow days for students across our area.

So, in order to make up for the lost time and not take away from summer vacation, Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast High School is taking its first cyber snow day Thursday.

This is a pilot program at "Bonner and Prendie." Here's what the plan is at this point:

  • Assignments will be posted for each class by the 9 a.m. on the school's internal system;
  • Assignments will be self-contained and are to be turned in electronically;
  • Teachers will be available for cyber office hours, almost like any other cyber school, to answer questions from the students.

In order for this program to be successful and allow it to count as a make-up day, school officials say they must have significant student participation.

So, that means, the amount of students taking part needs to reflect average daily attendance in class.

In the second video clip, you can see more of Mike Jerrick and Sheinelle's reaction to the idea Thursday morning on "Good Day Philadelphia."
