Proposed School Start Date

Students across Alabama may be affected by a proposed change in the 2008 legislative session in coming school years.

Tourism Board members are working to push the start date of school later to allow more revenue to be generated through sales and lodging taxes.

Some school officials are concerned that the change is not being made in the best interest of the students, however they do recognize that extending the summer months would allow more revenue to be funneled into school systems.

The 2008 legislative session, where the proposed uniform school start date will be discussed, gets underway next week.
