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.

The bill also would allow the state Department of Public Instruction to reimburse schools for periods outside regular and summer school calendars.

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