Second thoughts on teacher workdays

My previous post urging some school districts to cancel the upcoming teacher workdays was written rather hastily. This afternoon I talked to a neighbor walking home with her son from Weyanoke Elementary School. She said that it is very time-consuming for the teachers to enter in the end-of-quarter grades.  One reason is that the computer program is rather cumbersome.

Perhaps Fairfax should go ahead and switch to a more up-to-date computer program.

    I disagree. If we assume (though I do not agree with) the premise that students are not able to go to school on an inclement weather day – why can’t the teachers still go to work that day (like everyone else who still manages to go to work in the Washington, DC metropolitan area on the vast majority of FCPS inclement weather days) and use the inclement weather days as the teacher work days, eliminating the need for the other teacher work days that are already built into the calendar and allowing those days to become regular school days for the students to make-up for the inclement weather days.
