MADISON, Wis. - A bill that would allow Wisconsin schools to extend school days and shorten school years to save money is up for a vote in the Senate this week.

Another change under the law allows the state Department of Public Instruction to fund remedial courses and interim school sessions. The package is being viewed as a cost saving measure for districts that have seen state funding decrease in recent years.

Three Democrats joined the bill's Republican sponsors, and DPI and other education groups have voiced strong support for the proposal.
