VERMILLION COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – The state allowed school districts to extend school days as a way to make up snow days accumulated from this past winter.

Friday was the last extended day for South Vermillion Schools.

South Vermillion was among the first districts in our viewing area to implement a plan to use extended days.

Superintendent David Chapman says knocking out their extended days now allows them to finish their school year as planned.

“We’re not going to extend the school year out any, graduation is set. The spring testing is set. We’re prepared for that. After school activities have not been altered,” Chapman said.

South Vermillion used the extra time to help students prepare for ISTEP and other spring testing. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
