LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) - Governor Snyder has signed legislation allowing school districts to extend the length of school days.
If school districts exceed the six days of closure allotted, they can now lengthen the school day for the rest of the year. Prior to this, schools had to add make up days to the end of the year.
Schools must attain 1,098 hours of instruction each year.
The bill was designed to assist schools in northern and western Michigan that have to use more snow days than allowed.
