New York State could be considering changing the way schools operate.
According to the Albany Times Union, the state is looking at a school year that could start before Sept. 1.
Right now, state law says no public school can start before that date, but education officials are looking to change that in the upcoming legislative session.
The move is meant to help districts meet their annual instructional requirements.
Officials are also considering a proposal that school years be counted in hours rather than days.
