Nelson Supports Earlier School Start
Under current state law schools can't start the school year any earlier than September 1st, but there are state legislators who want to change that. And there are district superintendents that support the measure. Like La Crosse's Randy Nelson.
State Representative Jim Ott co-sponsored a proposal to change the starting dates. The Legislature, like many schools, is on summer break so the soonest this proposal could be considered is September.
