Snowfall in the Washington, D.C., region is expected to close schools for more than a week, leading teachers to consider ways for students to continue learning at home. The city's school system has posted links to virtual museum tours and online work on its Web site, and teachers in a Virginia district are assigning work via an online bulletin board. Educators say they will provide additional tutoring and resources when students return, and the superintendent of a Maryland school system said he plans to ask for a delay in state tests to give students more time to prepare.
