Bill to change school calendar from days to hours heading to legislature

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) — There could soon be a change to your child’s school calendar.  A bill removing restrictions on makeup days is moving through the legislature. It would change required instruction time from days, to hours.

Right now students must have 180 days of instruction. This bill would allow schools to work on an hourly equivalent of 1080 instructional hours. Each school district’s board of education would choose the system best suited for its needs.
