Online learning keeps Wisconsin schools on schedule during bad weather
On the morning of the fifth snow day this school year, 16-year-old Davis Greene slept in, but didn’t get a pass from school.
Once he was up, the Neenah High School junior walked downstairs, had some breakfast and joined peers across the school district for whom school, at least digitally, was in session.
Instead of the day off traditionally coveted by students across Wisconsin, Greene’s teachers taught online to keep their kids on track. The district piloted its “Digital Learning Days” this year to keep up with the number of instruction minutes required by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
