School after Labor Day Petition Approved

Posted: Updated:

BISMARCK, N.D. - A group of parents who want to mandate that North Dakota schools start classes after Labor Day can begin collecting signatures to try to bring their proposal to a public vote next year.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger approved the petition for circulation on Friday.

The group hopes to put an initiated measure on the November 2014 ballot. Proponents will need to collect 13,452 signatures to force a vote.  If the signatures are collected, the group that wishes to start school after Labor Day can then choose to place the measure on the ballot for either the June 10, 2014 or the November 4, 2014 election.

Each school district is currently free to set its own calendar, including the starting date for the academic year.
