Assembly passes school day change bill

MADISON, WI (WEAU) The State Assembly has passed a bill that would end the requirement that schools teach for 180 days each year or lose state funding.

The measure would allow schools to extend their days rather than force them to stay open later in the summer to make up for lost time due to closings.

However, schools that don't meet the hourly quota would still lose state aid.

The Senate passed the bill last week and the the Aassembly approved it Tuesday.

It now goes to Governor Walker for his signature.
