LANSING, Mich.--- Next year, schools in Michigan will have more options for making up snow days.
Districts now have the option to hold classes for only 174 days even if more days were originally scheduled.
Schools still have to meet the requirement of 1,000 hours per school year.
In cases where schools do need to make up days they can get state funding for those days as long as 60 percent of students attend.
That's down from the previous requirement of 75 percent attendance.
Governor Rick Snyder signed legislation relaxing the rules after the record snowfall and harsh temperatures this past winter.
