Count Day Delay

Although Wednesday was student Count Day for schools across Michigan, state officials say schools that closed for the snowstorm won't be penalized. "Count Day" is important for school districts because it's the day schools count student population to calculate how much state funding they will receive. Deputy State Superintendent Carol Wolenberg informed districts the law allows an alternative supplement count day on the next day school is in session. Over 300 schools were closed yesterday as a result of Tuesday’s inclement weather. One school district that remained open was White Cloud. Superintendent Barry Seabrook says even if parents kept some kids home yesterday, the state allows for an adjusted count.
