New law tells schools to track attendance by hours, not days
By Shelley Grieshop
A new state law eliminates school calamity days and reduces the minimum amount of attendance by calculating hours, not days.
The law, which goes into effect in the fall of 2014, will allow local students and staff to spend about 120 hours less in the classroom than they currently do each year. Districts will have the flexibility to shorten the school calendar and possibly use the excess hours as a replacement for the terminated calamity days. [More]
