Los Angeles Unified School District is considering starting the school year in mid-August, with the idea of ending semester before the long holiday break.
Some parents are pushing back, saying it's too hot in Los Angeles to start school in mid-August, when temperatures hit the 100s.
Here's the Los Angeles Times' story on the discussion.
Marcus Walton, Capistrano Unified School District's spokesman, said staffers are pulling together the 2011-2012 calendar now, but there's no talk of starting school before Labor Day.
The last time the district considered that, he said, parents pushed back because of vacations and other concerns.
The final decision, of course, rests with the Board of Trustees. The calendars are expected to be on the February or March agenda.
