In this record-setting year for weather-related school cancellations, educators are scrambling to cover their material in less time to avoid extending school calendars into summer vacation.

Testing windows are also being revised. Ohio, for instance, announced that schools will get an additional week to prepare students for spring testing. Indiana also extended its testing window, as did Pennsylvania.

The extra time for testing applies to grades 3-8, but not to high school, even though the older students must pass a state test to graduate. If the high school testing window were extended, there wouldn't be time to get results back before graduation.
