Snow days bill still up in the air for Kentucky schools
Kentucky lawmakers are still working to come to an agreement on how to best give some relief to Kentucky school districts that are looking for ways to make up missed school days. Some districts across the state have missed more than 30 days due to snow and ice. The discussion now appears headed to a House-Senate conference committee. The Senate version of the bill was refused by the House on Wednesday. The Senate plan would allow school boards to submit revised calendars to the state education commissioner to adjust for lost instructional time. School boards could request a state waiver from the required 1,062 instructional hours if the districts could still not make up all the lost time. The House version would allow districts to have up to 10 missed days waived.
