Longer days to make up for snow days

With all the winter weather delaying and canceling school, many are wondering how students will make up for all the missed days.

Officials with the Pennsylvania Department of Education say schools are required to offer 180 days before June 30th.

But schools can apply to have their minimum time requirement calculated in hours not days, so instead of adding more days the existing days would be longer.

It's not yet known if any local schools will apply for the waiver.
