Bill Approved to Forgive Four Snow Days
The Michigan Legislation recently passed a bill that will allow schools to not lose many of the school days lost by the snow. According to WLNS, Michigan Legislation passed a bill, that is expected to be signed by the Governor, and it would forgive Michigan schools from having to make up as many as four snow days. The bill took a few days to pass because representatives had a dispute over paying hourly workers, but enough from both sides are in support of the bill.
The only exclusion from this recent bill would be the period from Jan. 29 through Feb. 1, which when we had the artic freeze. So if any school districts used snow days during that period, which mostly all did, then they will not get those days back. Many of the school districts in Michigan have reached their maximum of nine snow days, so this bill will help. You can read more about it here.
