The State Board of Education is weighing in on Michigan's recent snow days.

The board of ed is encouraging the state's public schools that have exceeded six snow days to add full days, instead of extra hours to remaining days.

The board took a unanimous stance on the issue this week.

The approach is recommended by the board instead of adding hours to remaining days on existing school calendars, which could be allowed under legislation that has been introduced in Lansing.

Any snow days beyond six must be replaced, for a district to get full state funding.
