Snow Day Make-up Bill

A new bill proposed in the state aimed at offering a new aspect on snow day make-ups is not likely to have any effect on Mid-Michigan. Representative Phil Potvin created a bill that would allow school districts to have the option to make up their snow days in hours instead of days. State law requires students to have 1,098 hours of instruction a school year. Jennifer Verleger, assistant superintendent for human resources, said that in Mount Pleasant schools the snow day make-up policy will not change and will continue to add days of instruction as opposed to hours. Mount Pleasant schools will have to make up approximately a day and a half of instruction time at the end of the year.
