Explanation

The amendment allows local and regional school districts to be exempt from the requirement of holding one hundred and eighty school session days during each year, if the school district has had to cancel school due to an outbreak of novel influenza A (H1N1) flu.

This could result in a potential minimal savings to local and regional school districts associated with energy and maintenance expenses, since they are required to be open fewer days during the year.

Additionally, this could result in a potential minimal revenue loss to local and regional school districts who participate in the state school breakfast grant program, as the grant is based on the number of meals served and the number of days that a school is in session. Correspondingly, this could result in a potential minimum revenue gain to local and regional school districts that do hold one hundred and eighty school session days a year, as the state school breakfast grant program would redistribute the funds from the school districts experiencing a revenue loss.
