The Bethel School district made adjustments to this school year to accommodate renovations of Johnson and Rockwell schools, creating a summer of nearly 12 weeks to maximize construction for the projects. Superintendent Christine Carver says in two winter previews, data showed it could be a tough few months. Last year there were 12 missed days due to inclement weather. If there are 3 weather related closures by February 15th, Bethel students will go to class on February 19th. If there are 4 closures, February 18th and 19th will be in-school days. Carver says she will try to avoid taking time from April vacation. She was asked why teachers can't prepare work for students to do at home so they don't lose a day, but explained that the state defines seat time in order to meet the 180 day minimum.
