WORCESTER CO., Md. - A major change is on the way for Worcester County Schools next school year.
According to a spokeswoman for the Worcester County School District, the district's board of education voted for classes to begin after Labor Day for the 2014 to 2015 school year.
According to the public schools' website, classes will start on September 2nd next fall, setting the last day of school back to June 16th. The district also reportedly has three snow days built into the calendar, and if they are not used, they will be subtracted.
Officials with the board say Worcester County was the last school system in Maryland to move to a pre-Labor Day start five years ago, and with the holiday falling at the very beginning of September, they were willing to change back.
