Minn. state senator proposes letting schools count snow days as instruction


February 28, 2019

Minnesota schools could have more flexibility to count snow days as regular instruction or offer e-learning as an alternative during weather-related closures under a legislative proposal unveiled Wednesday.

Sen. Carla Nelson, R-Rochester, said the goal of her bill, which she's calling "The Snow Day Relief Act," is to allow schools to meet state calendar requirements and better serve students when inclement conditions hit. She noted that under current law, districts and local leaders could face funding shortages and other penalties for failing to meet the mandated number of days in session in a school year.
