Petition Aims To Push School Start After Labor Day

Petition Aims To Push School Start After Labor Day

Currently, there are 500 petition sheets circulating across Sioux Falls in an effort to gain enough signatures to force a vote next year.

The drive comes after an April decision by the Sioux Falls School board that approved the calendar for the next three years, all starting before Labor Day. Wendy McDonnell wants the start date pushed back so families can have more quality time during the warmer months, and she says it will have a positive impact on businesses.

Coming up tonight on KELOLAND News, hear how close they are to reaching the number of signatures needed for the vote as well as reaction from the school board president.
