School Calendar approved
The Huntsville Board of Education has now approved the 2013-2014 school calendar. Current state law requires local school districts not begin the school year before August 19th, the school year must end before Memorial Day, and it must include 180 days of student instruction. An “Opt Out” bill is being introduced in Montgomery that, if approved, would remove the calendar mandates. Local school districts could then apply for a waiver from the state.
