Gaining School Calendar Flexibility in 2015

By January 23, 2015 No Comments

Recently, there has been considerable discussion about school district flexibility in creating school year calendars given the late Labor Day holiday and start dates for 2015, 2016 and 2017.

If this is a concern in your district, MREA recommends your school board to adopt a resolution to start school before September 8, 2015, and to request legislators to enter a bill on behalf of the school district.  Once you have adopted a resolution, contact your legislators and email MREA.
