Ky. Senate OKs bill offering snow days relief



FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Senate has passed its version of assisting school districts facing a mounting number of missed days due to the harsh winter.

The measure would allow local school boards to submit revised calendars to the state education commissioner to adjust for lost instructional time.

If school districts still can't make up all the lost time, school boards could request a waiver from the required 1,062 instructional hours in a school year.

The Senate attached those provisions to a House bill and passed it 38-0 Monday. The measure returns to the House.

The House passed a bill last week that would allow districts to have up to 10 missed days waived.

Some districts have missed more than 30 days due to snow and ice.

___

The Senate-passed bill is House Bill 211.
