- Wisconsin schools may soon get more flexibility on how they schedule their required number of class hours.
The state Senate passed a bill Tuesday that would let districts schedule fewer class days.
The school day would be made longer to keep the amount of time kids spend in class the same.
The bill has widespread support from educators and legislators.
It now heads to the Assembly.
Rural schools applauded the proposal as a way to save money.
The bill also would allow the state Department of Public Instruction to reimburse schools for periods outside regular and summer school calendars.
