LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Rick Snyder has signed a new school closing law.

The law will allow districts to extend days instead of extending the school year if they exceed the allotted number of cancellation days.  Districts can cancel up to six school days a year and the new law allows administrators to lengthen existing days rather than schedule makeup days.

Michigan law requires districts to provide 170 days and approximately eleven-hundred hours to qualify for funding.
