State: District’s ‘Virtual School Day’ Won’t Count

MONTVALE, N.J. -

– A high school’s decision to have a “virtual school day” during a winter storm earlier this year was innovative, but it won’t count as one of the required 180 school days, The Record reported. More than 96 percent of Pascack Valley high school students logged in from home on Feb. 13, but since the facilities were not available, state education officials say it cannot meet the requirements of a true school day.
