The community is invited to provide input on a proposal to start school the week before Labor Day.
The Saline Area Schools district is hosting a forum at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Jan. 8, in the media center at Liberty School.
To bolster Michigan’s tourism industry, in 2006 the state pushed the school start to after Labor Day. Today school districts can apply for a waiver to start school before Labor Day. The Saline district has already applied for such a waiver. However, the Saline Board of Education has not yet ruled on the issue.
