Proposal would give schools flexibility for making up snow days

Lead in text: 
Districts are currently allowed six snow days. Some districts in northern Michigan had to take up to 12 this winter
One northern Michigan lawmaker wants local school districts to add extra hours to the school day instead of extending the academic year so excessive "snow days" don't cause some districts to come up short on state-mandated class time.
