Some NC Lawmakers Want To Revise School Calendar

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Some North Carolina lawmakers hope this year's winter storms will spark new discussion on the law on when schools can start and must end.


The Charlotte Observer reported (http://bit.ly/1ctfIL2) that Rep. Tricia Cotham of Mecklenburg County said she thinks adjusting the law will get more support because of the snow this year.


Cotham wants the state to leave it up to local districts to decide when to start and end classes.


The current law requires that schools start no earlier than the Monday closest to August 26 and end no later than the Friday closest to June 11.


That creates problems with making up snow days.


But some lawmakers say it's unlikely that the law will be changed because this year's legislative session is a short one.
