Mandated School Calendar 

January 2020
- We're hearing the tourism and summer camp industries are going to push hard and soon this legislative session for a longer summer by requiring the school year start after Labor Day and end before Memorial Day. Apparently, legislators are warming up to the idea of passing a mandated calendar bill early in the session. These efforts remove the authority to set school calendar dates from where it rightfully belongs -- with local school boards. AASB strongly opposes proposed legislative mandates that strip away decision-making power from local school boards.

Join AASB in urging lawmakers to Leave Our Calendar Authority Local (L.O.C.A.L.). Visit our L.O.C.A.L. webpage for more information about this issue and resources to preserve your authority to set your school calendar.
