From the Associated Press:

House and Senate negotiators have put together a draft proposal to give relief to Kentucky school districts struggling to make up lost days this winter.

The proposal would let districts extend school days to a maximum seven hours daily. The goal is to give districts scheduling flexibility to reach the required 1,062 instructional hours in a school year.

For districts unable to reach that threshold, the school year would automatically end June 11.

Democratic Rep. John Will Stacy and Republican Sen. Mike Wilson say the proposal will be presented to lawmakers Monday to get feedback.

Stacy says the proposal is a "middle ground" giving school employees and parents some certainty about the end of the school year.

Some districts have missed more than 30 days due to snow and ice.
