Rep. Gray
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 14 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO REQUIRING THAT EACH SCHOOL YEAR BEGIN AFTER LABOR DAY.
This Act requires public schools to begin their school year after Labor Day. There have been many economic impact reports done that show a positive impact from starting public schools after Labor Day. A report by the Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association estimates that $369 million would be lost if schools were not required to start after Labor Day. This includes $104 million in wages and $21 million in state and local taxes. Maryland is considering similar legislation. A study of Maryland found that pushing the start of school back would generate $74.3 million in economic activity and $7.7 million in new state and local tax revenue.
