Bill To Allow NJ Schools to Use Virtual Instruction in Case of Bad Weather

This bill would allow school districts that have pre-planned instructional platforms in place to substitute virtual days when schools have been closed for three or more days due to weather or other emergency conditions. This bill is in response to the NJ Department of Education’s disallowing the Pascack Valley Regional High School  District‘s substitution of virtual instruction when severe winter weather had closed down the school. Reportage on this innovative answer for snow days can be found at: The New York Times, NJ Spotlight, CNN, NJTV (with video), and Education Week.
