FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - The state House voted 97-1 Friday to allow Kentucky school districts to set June 6 as their last day of school.
The bill overwhelmingly passed the Senate on Thursday and now heads to Gov. Steve Beshear's desk for his signature.
The measure allows the hardest-hit districts to apply for a waiver for their missed snow days. Districts could also extend school days to make up for lost time.
Jefferson County Public Schools previously set its last day for June 12. It's unclear whether the school board will change that now that the General Assembly has passed the legislation.
Bullitt County's school board voted Thursday to extend school days by 14 minutes to end on June 6 in the hopes the bill would pass.
