FRANKFORT — The Senate signed off Thursday on a plan to provide relief to Kentucky school districts from snow make-up days.
On a 36-1 vote, the Senate sent House Bill 211 back to the House after attaching to it the snow days plan crafted this week by House and Senate negotiators.
House Majority Leader Rocky Adkins, D-Flatwoods, said the House will consider the measure Friday.
The plan would allow school districts to make June 6 the last day of the school year. It would urge the districts to reach 1,062 hours of instruction for the academic year with oversight from Education Commissioner Terry Holliday. The districts could extend the length of their remaining days as long as no school day included more than seven instructional hours.
Any school district that wanted to go beyond June 6 could.
