DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Des Moines NAACP Youth Council says the Des Moines school district should not have made Martin Luther King Jr. Day a snow makeup day this year.

The district is using Jan. 21 to make up two days of school that were canceled because of a late December storm.

The youth council for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People met Monday. It intends to submit a letter of protest to the Des Moines school board on Tuesday evening.

Interim superintendent Tom Ahart says students will spend time on the holiday at school learning about King and his civil rights work.

Ahart says the King holiday and Presidents Day were designated as weather makeup days so the school year could end May 31.
