Survey Results: Should CPS consider a pre-Labor Day school start?

Based on a change to the Code of Virginia in 2019, school boards are now permitted to open schools as early as two weeks before Labor Day. If this change were to occur, the law requires that students have a four-day Labor Day weekend with schools closed the Friday before Labor Day through the actual holiday.

Chesapeake Public Schools sought stakeholder input to determine if a pre-Labor Day school start should be considered for future school calendars.  Responses were collected from October 29, 2019, through November 15, 2019.
