Districts nationwide are moving to a blended-learning model when severe weather prevents students from coming to school. Chicago recently took advantage of online coursework during snow days, and in a New Hampshire district, a snow day counts as an instructional day if 80% of students and staff participate in online instruction. In response to expected storms, districts in Ohio can give out "blizzard bags," which contain printed copies of educational materials in case students lack access to the Internet.
