NOVI, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Friday will sign legislation to forgive Michigan schools from rescheduling up to four snow days that occurred during an arctic deep freeze.
Whitmer will enact the bill at an education conference in Novi. It would let schools not count the Jan. 29-Feb. 1 period toward a cap on snow days.
State law forgives districts from making up six days that have been canceled for emergencies, and schools can get a waiver from the state superintendent for three additional days. Many districts have already reached or exceeded nine snow days.
