School Boards Association spokesman Frank Belluscio says the districts need to hold classes on Nov. 8 and 9 to get to the required 180 for the year.

Many districts across the state were closed all week this week because of the storm.

He says that for those that missed fewer days, there are more options for making up days, including shortening spring break. He says that teachers unions have not had objected to holding classes next year. The New Jersey Education Association decided Thursday to cancel this year’s convention.
