No Compromise On School Calendar Legislation



Many school districts across the state remain in limbo as to what to do with the classroom time missed to this year’s winter weather.  The expected introduction of a legislative compromise failed to materialize Monday in the Kentucky General Assembly, and with the clock ticking down on the current legislative session, many school districts could be facing school calendars that last well into the month of June.
 
House and Senate negotiators could not agree Monday on when the school year should end. Reports indicate that House Speaker Greg Stumbo believes the bill is so important that he would be willing to appoint new negotiators to try again. Lawmakers have eight legislative days left to reach a compromise solution. State law requires school districts to have at least 170 days and 1,062 hours of classroom instruction each school year.
