No More Snow Days In Minnesota?
Minnesota lawmakers are discussing new legislation that could potentially be the end of snow days.
The Minnesota House of Representatives have a Education Innovation Policy meeting set in place today. One of the topics is H.F. 141, a bill that would allow schools to provide online schooling during inclement weather, which in Minnesota means snow days.
According to the Minnesota House of Representatives website, schools would be able to plan for up to five days of online instruction due to bad weather. This bill would require schools to have a plan in place for students who don't have access to internet at home. Schools would also have to give parents and students at least two hours notice before school starts that they will be doing e-learning that day.
