A House bill pre-filed for the upcoming 2019 General Assembly aims to remove what’s known as the “agricultural exemption” from current state law regulating potential start dates for new school years. Lake Area Representative Rocky Miller says it’s a bill that needs some serious consideration.
Currently, new school years are prohibited from starting any sooner than 10 days before Labor Day. Miller goes on to say that similar bills, in the past, have cleared in the House before stalling in the Senate. The General Assembly gets underway this week on Wednesday.
