JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi school districts that closed briefly because of last week's storms will not be required to make-up those days.

Dr. Wayne Gann, chairman of the Mississippi Board of Education, reached the decision during a special called meeting Thursday night.

Gann says several school districts had applied for a waiver after the storms forced schools to close because of damage or power outages, in some cases for up to a week.

He says the board felt it only fair to let classes finish on schedule because it was so late in the school year and the governor had declared a state of emergency because of the weather system.
