    But the state Department of Education’s decision to change an initial decision reached last May is a slap in the face to local board members.

    By virtue of an April 24 decision, Bullitt County public school students will be in the classrooms on June 3. This is one more day than the amended calendar called for after wind and ice storms.

    Faced with possibly losing $400,000 in state funding, school officials had to agree.
