INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The Indiana Education Committee passed and sent to the full Senate a bill to push back the start of the school until after Labor Day.
Supporters say the move would give families longer summer vacations and schools would save money by not needing to keep classrooms cool in August.
Opponents believe school districts should be able to set their own calendars.
If the bill becomes law, the change would take effect during the 2013-2014 school year.
