Gongwer is reporting that a conference committee dealing with the House and Senate version of calamity days has agreed to four extra snow days and no teacher in-service requirements.
According to the report, House language was that would have required teachers to go to work for extra professional development as a condition of the extra days was eliminated.
The committee also increased the number of days from the three in the Senate version to four. Schools are still allowed to make up missed days in 30-minute increments added onto regular days.
Final votes in both bodies are expected Wednesday.
