Assembly passes school hours bill
Placeholder Image
MADISON (AP) - The Wisconsin Assembly has passed a bill that would end a requirement that schools teach for 180 days a year or lose state funding. The Republican measure would allow schools to extend their days rather than force them to stay open later in the summer to make up time lost to weather-related closings and parent-teacher conferences. Schools that don't meet the hourly quota would still lose state aid.
