Students in one South Carolina school district will still have to complete their classwork even when it snows.
Anderson School District 5 is the first district in the state to eliminate snow days and replace them with "eLearning days." When the roads are too icy for buses, teachers will send assignments to their students' computers and can even monitor their progress online.
Superintendent Tom Wilson told the Anderson Independent-Mail it makes no sense to run buses on a make-up day in June where only a quarter of students attend.
The district will announce the eLearning day just like a snow day so students know the school buildings are closed.
The assignments don't require internet service and any students without power or with a technology issue will have five days to complete assignments.
