JEFFERSON CITY, MO. (KMOX) – A state representative plans to introduce a bill that would excuse Missouri schools from having to make up last week’s snow days.
Representative Joe Aull says he will propose a bill to help Missouri school districts that have missed more days than usual this winter.
Aull is introducing a bill Thursday that would excuse schools from making up any days missed between January 31st and February 4th.
During this time Governor Nixon declared a statewide emergency because of snow and ice storms throughout the state.
Aull says he is getting a large amount of support of his bill from both sides of the aisle.
The minimum number of school days the state of Missouri requires students to attend each school year is 174.
