Gov. Andy Beshear signed a bill Wednesday giving unlimited non-traditional instruction days to districts as needed.
“It provides relief for school districts due to this emergency,” Beshear said
Senate Bill 177 contains an emergency clause for it to take affect immediately. The bill was swiftly passed through the legislature as the state, country and world deals with COVID-19 affecting education.
The governor asked superintendents on March 20 to keep school closed until April 20.
Non-traditional instruction days are were students do school work at home and online and count as regular school days. These days do not have to be made up in the summer.
