Michigan schools to get break on snow days

LANSING, MI (WTVB) -  A new law gives school districts the opportunity to extend the length of school days at the end of the year in order to make up for snow days.  In signing the legislation Governor Snyder said, quote, "This will help schools that were forced to use more snow days this year, particularly in northern and west Michigan, to meet instructional time requirements without having to extend the school year further into June."  The State School Aid Act requires that schools must meet a minimum of 170 days and one-thousand-98 hours of pupil instruction to qualify for funding.
