A bill to allow Iowa schools to start up to 14 days before Labor Day cleared the Iowa House. Under present law, schools are to start the academic year after Labor Day, unless they get a waiver. Representative Cecil Dolecheck, a republican from Mount Ayr, says only 20 to 30 of Iowa’s 374 school districts were starting after Labor Day. The rest applied and got the waiver to start earlier. The bill has opponents. Dolecheck says tourist groups are not happy with the bill. The bill cleared the House yesterday and will now be considered by the Senate.
