A law under the Bruce Rauner administration has left open the option that snow days could be considered 'instructional days' in Illinois schools, meaning school districts may not lose that day of instruction.

 

Superintendent of Clinton Schools Curt Nettles explains with the change in the funding formula in Illinois last year, the law also changed what is considered an 'instructional day'.

 

 

The possibility is also opened up for participation in internship programs which Nettles points out, would allow more flexibility for their students. 

 

 

With a new Governor now in the fold in Illinois, Nettles says he is hearing the new administration is seeking to revert back to the way things were but he hopes the supermajority in Springfield will find a "happy medium".
