Many school districts throughout Ohio have been using their allotted calamity days this year during the severe cold weather and snowy conditions.

Some are close to using all of the snow days they’ve set aside for the school year. That sometimes worries teachers and parents who fear spring breaks might be shortened or extra days might be added to the end of the school year.

In an interview with Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles, John Charlton of the Ohio Department of Education explains current state law gives school districts a lot of leeway to deal with bad weather.
