Missouri bill could change school day requirements

A Missouri House Bill could change the number of days Missouri students are required to go to school.

House Bill 1943 says students must go to school for 1,044 hours, but no minimum number of school days is required.

If passed, the bill would go into affect for the 2017-2018 school year.

Right now, school districts are required to meet a minimum of 174 days.

The bill also says starting in the 2017-2018 school year, students will not spend more than two-percent of the school term taking required, state-wide testing.
