Most students across the state are heading back to school a little later than they are used to.
In an effort to increase summer tourism, lawmakers approved a measure that would prevent public schools from starting earlier than today. Some school systems were scrambling to adjust their calendars.
Two state legislators are already talking about changing this. On Monday morning, Homewood Representative Paul DeMarco will hold a press conference at Homewood High School to announce he has pre-filed a bill that would let school systems opt out of that mandatory start date.
He will be joined by State Senator Bill Holtzclaw from Madison.
