With lots of ice and snow closing schools this winter, Hoosier school corporations are wondering how to make up so many snow days.   State law requires Indiana students to complete 180 days of instruction each school year.  The state Department of Education can grant waivers to individual districts, but spokeswoman Lauren Auld says the state has not granted any waivers for weather purposes this school year.  Some school officials say they are considering pushing back graduation dates, continuing classes after graduation, or even scheduling Saturday make-up days.
