Some districts are already looking ahead to the next school year.

A spokesperson told us the Eaton County RESA and the districts it covers have decided to apply for a waver to start classes before Labor Day in 2017. 

Schools in Jackson County did the same this year to keep everyone on the same calendar. 

The tourism industry is asking the legislature to change the law, so nobody can start school before Labor Day.
