KY lawmakers working on plan to waive up to 10 snow days

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky teachers and parents fed up with snow days eating into their summer plans could get some relief from state lawmakers.

On Monday, lawmakers moved forward with a plan to force the state to waive up to 10 teaching days that were canceled because of weather conditions.

Jefferson County Public Schools has used 11 snow days this year.

Although it's not a dollars-and-cents issue, lawmakers are planning to put the plan in the state's budget which legislators have to approve before leaving Frankfort in April.
