Spencer County won’t accept a governor’s pardon for school days missed because of winter ice storms. Instead, the district will extend its calendar to account for lost instructional time, according to Superintendent Chuck Adams.
The last school day for students will likely be May 29, he said.
Gov. Steve Beshear signed a bill late last month to allow districts to waive up to 10 missed days of school because of February’s havoc-wreaking ice storm. At its peak, the storm left almost 800,000 without power and cut off drinking water to more than 200,000.
