LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Jefferson County Public School officials are keeping their fingerscrossed that there won't be any more snow days. That might be tough with theweather that's headed our way. JCPS school leaders held a meetingMonday afternoon to figure out how to make up the days missed.

Monday was the sixth snow day for JCPS students. With snow days piling up the district is considering adding classes on two days currentlyscheduled off for students.

"Therecommendation of our committee is to use February 24 and 25 as make updays," said JCPS Chief Operations Manager Dr. Michael Raisor. "Thatwill allow school to end currently June 5."

The 24 and 25 of February are currently scheduled for professional development. February 26through 28 have already been slated as make up days for snow daycancellations. Committee members say the recommendation  protects graduation and for those who havealready made summer plans.

If this recommendation is adopted, the committee hasbuilt in one cushion day which is Friday, June 6. If they have to use anymorethey'll have to add them to the end of the school year.  The committee will take their recommendationto the board February 10.
