A lawmaker from Cadillac says most schools in his district have already exceeded the number of allowed weather cancelations this year.
State Representative Phil Potvin says Michigan school districts should be allowed to cancel days more often.
“So in looking ahead, trying to be prepared, I’ve looked at moving that number that we allow from six up to nine,” he says.
Schools must make up any additional canceled days at the end of the school year. Otherwise, they risk losing some state funding.
