ELKTON, Ky. (AP) - A southern Kentucky county is the latest to get a waiver to keep students in class in cases of inclement weather.

The Todd County School District applied to pursue non-traditional instruction through an application process through the Kentucky Department of Education, one of 13 Kentucky school districts chosen to do so.

The waiver means students can have virtual classes online.

Director of districtwide services Edwin Oyler told the Kentucky New Era (https://bit.ly/1DCKzyA ) the district may count up to 10 days of non-traditional instruction toward regular attendance. This comes as a response to last winter’s ice storm, which cost some Kentucky school districts up to 30 days of school.

Corbin Independent Schools and Boyle, Grant, Jessamine, Johnson, Lawrence, Leslie, Owsley, Pike, Taylor, Washington and Wolfe County schools also received waivers.
