Kentucky could soon exterminate a program that allows schools in the state to send home assignments to work on during snow days after receiving the okay from a bill by the state Senate.

After a whopping 36-0 decision, the Kentucky Senate has passed Senate Bill 73.  the bill will ditch the Non-Traditional Instruction program in three years. The program allows school districts send work home with students during snow days, so the day does not count as an absence and the school does not have to make it up by the end of the year.

But Republican state Sen. David Givens said some districts are having students do a minuscule amount of work and counting it as a school day. He said the program creates “disparities of learning” in the state’s school districts.

The bill now heads to the House of Representatives and they will announce their stance.
