The Indianapolis public school system’s plan for a two-hour delay on Monday may be indefinitely delayed.
The Indianapolis Star reports that state officials have told the school system that two-hour delays are reserved for emergencies. If the city uses the delay — ostensibly for sleepy bus drivers — they won’t get credit for a full day of school.
“We have presented IPS (Indianapolis Public Schools) with alternatives that ensure our children receive the instructional time they deserve.”
Taking the delay away from the kiddies now just seems cruel. If the Colts lose, it could turn out to be the worst day of some 11-year-old’s life.
