Ky. snow-days bill dies in General Assembly

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A bill designed to waive 10 snow days for Ky. schools this year is dead in the state legislature.

The Ky. Senate passed its own version of House Bill 211 last week, but it was not passed on Monday in the General Assembly.

Lawmakers were not able to come to an agreement on the last day of school and other issues related to the bill.

The bill would have provided relief for school districts across the state, which have racked up as many as 30 snow days this school year.

The JCPS School is expected to meet Monday night and set graduation dates for June 12-14.

But if there are more snow days, graduations will be pushed back.

JCPS has had 11 snow days this year.

Tonight's vote will be during the public meeting at Van Hoose Education Center at 7 p.m.

The Oldham County School Board voted Monday night to approve June 7 as the graduation date for its three high schools.
