Governor Beshear signed off on a bill Monday that will change the requirement for public school days.

The legislation waives the 170-school day requirement in Kentucky.

It only applies to this school year.

Some schools in Kentucky had up to 30 missed days because of winter weather.

Under the legislation, schools would still be required to have 1,062 hours of classroom time.
