2019 House Bill 4206: Allow schools to not make up lost "polar vortex" school days

To establish that public schools do not have to make up the three class days that were canceled during the extreme cold weather of January 29 to February 2, 2019. Under current law, schools are allowed to miss six "snow days" without a financial penalty and without having to make-up the lost days at the end of the school year. Specifically, the bill lets schools that used-up their six snow days avoid penalties for missing an additional three day period "for which the governor has issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency." Districts that missed up to 14 days but made up the lost hours on other school days would also avoid penalties. Also, to require school districts to compensate hourly workers for the pay they lost due to no school on those three days.
