Kentucky lawmakers vote to suspend the state law that requires school districts to have 170 days of classes. This comes after they failed to reach an agreement on a bill to issue waivers for make-up school days.

But this only counts if the school districts can meet a certain threshold. Students would still have to have more than 1,000 hours of classroom instruction.

If all requirements are met, the school year would end on June 6.

As we've been reporting, a lot of the schools across the state have missed a large amount of class because of the Winter weather.
