Marion Community School students continue to put in longer days in an effort to make up time that had been lost to snow days since the start of January, and school officials like what they’re seeing as a result of the longer school days.
Marion Teachers Association President John Butcher says the longer days are simply a chance to make things better for the students...especially during ISTEP testing this week.
Butcher says students, teachers and parents have worked well together during the longer school days, using it as “time well spent” instead of “time made up.”
The longer school days in Marion schools will continue through late April.
