May he storms of the past winter will be just so many bad memories for most people But for the school adminis trators teachers and students of many North Iowa communi ties those storms will he as vivid then as if they had hap pened the previous clay The reason Because of the storms many area schools wore forced to close their doors for between five and 10 days Unless Ihe schools make up these missed clays they will fall short of the 80 school days required in order to be eligible for full state aid As a result some area schools have shortened scheduled spring vacations and extended the end the school year from two days to a week Despite these efforts tomake up the lost time most area school superintendents agree they will never be able to make up enough days to reach the re quired 180 clays This means these schools will have to file a General Aid Request for Time Lost Adjustment with Paul F Johnston director of the Iowa State Board of Public Instruc tion If this request receives John stons approval these schools will receive their full amount of state aid even though they havent had the required 180 days of school Johnston told the GlobeGa zette Thursday that he antici pates general approval of these requests if the schools have made an effort to make up as much of the lost time as pos sible One requirement for ap proval of the request lie added is that schools which have lost time extend the school year until the last Friday before Memorial Day May Several area schools already have indicated they will extend Ihcir school year These include Iowa Falls North Central at Manly HockwellSwaledale St Ansgar McscrveyThornton and GarnerHayfielcl Most of these school and others including Sheffield Chapin and Clear Lake also plan to shorten their spring vacations Other area schools are waiting to see if any more days will be missed before they make a fina de cision on extension or shorten ing of vacations Following is a rundown of the plans of some of t h e area schools
