FROM LAUSD | http://bit.ly/NVqYI
The LAUSD is proposing a District-wide Early Start Instructional Calendar for all single-track elementary, middle and senior high schools for the 2011-2012 school year.
Under the proposed calendar, schools would start on August 15, 2011 and end on June 1, 2012 for students.

Don't say you weren't warned. This may be the totality of the warning – but here it is!
Send in your comments – because the conventional wisdom has it this is a 'done deal ' …even if the air conditioning at your school isn't up to it and August is too hot on the playground!
- The bright kids will figure out they are being cheated out of two weeks of summer vacation they will never get back …but bright kids like school!
- This also cuts two weeks from the summer maintenance schedule of schools
- … while substantially improving the schedule of 'teaching to the test'!
