State Representative Kristina Roegner (R-Hudson) announced today that the Ohio House of Representatives passed legislation to increase the number of calamity days that school districts are allocated for the 2013-2014 school year.

House Bill 416 would allow two additional calamity days, bringing the total number of days to seven for the remainder of the 2013-2014 school year. Schools are currently allotted five calamity days for the year, with school districts making up days beyond the fifth.

“During her school’s fifth calamity day, my ten-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn, came to Columbus and delivered proponent testimony on this bill, citing the extreme winter weather driving the need for this legislation.” Rep. Roegner said. “She is right, and I am delighted to support HB 416.”

In addition to calamity days, schools already have the ability to make up three days through the use of “blizzard bags,” which are lesson plans and teaching materials prepared in advance of inclement weather. Starting with the 2014-2015 school year, schools will be switching from a measurement of days to hours for minimum instruction time.

House Bill 416 will now be under consideration by the Ohio Senate.
