Sorry, kids. If you attend Broward County public schools, summer vacation will end early.
The School Board on Tuesday approved its calendar for the 2018-19 school year, which will start Wednesday, Aug. 15 — six days earlier than last year. It’s also the first midweek start in recent years.
The start of the school year has been a contentious issue over the years. District officials say an earlier start is better for academic purposes. But a number of parents say later starts help avoid conflicts with out-of-state camps, family trips and academic summer programs.
