Last Day of School: May 30

J-E News Editor
Kentucky schools all breathed a sigh of relief last week when Governor Steve Beshear signed House Bill 211 (HB211) last Monday, officially making the so called snow day bill a law. HB211 suspends the state law requiring school districts have at least 170 days of classes.
Over the winter Webster County students missed a total of 16 days, which had pushed the end of school into the month of June. 
With HB211 in effect, the district will look to make May 30, 2014 the final day of classes, with graduation to follow that night. This proposed schedule must be approved by the school board. This issue will be presented to them  for their approval at the next board meeting on April 14 at 5:00 p.m.
