Spring Break Won't Halt School for Some KC pupils
KANSAS CITY - Spring break won't be much of a break for more than 1,000 students in the Kansas City district.
Nearly every school is offering educational sessions next week. The district has offered spring break sessions in the past, but they were limited to only a few schools.
Teachers will tutor elementary pupils in reading, writing and math. Older students will get help preparing for end-of-course exams.
The district says the sessions are vital as students prepare for state tests that begin next month.
Most sessions will meet from 9 a.m. to noon over a three-day period.
Nearly 1,400 students already have registered to participate, and more students are expected to show up when classes begin. But only students who signed up early will qualify for transportation.
