After applauding parents for their work on this bill, conferees pass HB2486 requiring 200 day min. of class instruction http://bit.ly/bIxcPk 3 minutes ago via web

Here’s what the bill says: “Requires all public schools, including charter schools, to implement a minimum of two hundred days of classroom instruction, or an equivalent number of instructional hours, per school year. Effective 1/1/2099.”
