Students at 10 HISD middle and high schools would see slightly longer school days under a policy that received preliminary approval Thursday night from the HISD school board.

The policy requires all schools to adopt a minimum 7-hour, 15-minute daily schedule.

Only 10 HISD schools currently meet at least seven hours per day but less than the proposed 7-hour, 15-minute schedule.
