Portland Public Schools to start before Labor Day

Posted: Updated:

The Portland Public Schools board has voted to start the school year earlier. 

Starting this fall, classes will resume before Labor Day – on Aug. 29 – and run through June 9. The board voted on the measure 6-to-1 Tuesday evening.

They also approved an amendment that says planning for the 2017-2018 school year must be approved no later than November of this year, to give parents more time to make plans.
