Ohio House, Senate disagree on extra snow days for schools

COLUMBUS, OH (AP) -

State lawmakers are hung up over how many extra calamity days to give Ohio schools this year after hazardous winter weather.

 The House rejected Senate changes to a bill Wednesday, sending it to a negotiating conference committee after the two chambers failed to reach an agreement.

 The Senate passed a plan to let schools take up to four additional calamity days this year, with teachers reporting on one. But first, districts must use four contingency days.

 House lawmakers passed a separate version of the bill that would let schools receive up to four additional days off, with teachers having to report on two of those.

 Snow and frigid temperatures led many districts across Ohio to exhaust their five allowable calamity days. Some have canceled classes for 10 or more days.
