School after memorial Day weekend? DL board wrestles with school calendar
The Detroit Lakes School Board took a first look at the proposed calendar for the district's 2008-2009 school year and discussed possible changes at its meeting Monday evening.
Students in Minnesota schools cannot begin the school year before Labor Day, said Superintendent Doug Froke. The proposed first day of school would fall on Sept. 2, 2008, the first available day for students to attend classes.
