MADISON- Wisconsin schools are one step closer to having the flexibility to teach more hours for fewer days a year.
Rural schools applauded the proposal as a way to save money by keeping doors closed and avoiding higher transportation costs.

Leaders from bigger districts say they like the flexibility for funding from the state and the elimination of state mandates.
