FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A bill relaxing Kentucky’s school attendance laws is expected to be signed by Gov. Steve Beshear on Monday.

Both the Kentucky House and Senate have approved the bill which now awaits final enrollment.

It would suspend the state law requiring school districts have at least 170 days of classes this school year - as long as districts have at least 1,062 hours of classroom time. The only exception is no school district can have classes after June 6.

At least seven Kentucky school districts have missed more than 30 days of classes because of snowy weather. Another 40 districts have missed at least 20 days.
