LANSING, MI (WHTC) - If you have children of school age, you may be wondering how the past seven snow days will be made up. By law, school districts are required to provide a minimum of 170 days or match the number of days offered in the 2009-2010 school year, whichever is greater. Bill DiSessa from the Michigan Department of Education says the Legislature is considering a way to address the snow days. He went on to say that districts may be given more flexibility in regards on how to make up the time. DiSessa also said that the State Superintendent does not have the authority to grant additional days or hours of forgiven time unless the event happens after April 1st.
