Del. officials mull post-Labor Day school start

A task force studying whether Delaware schools should wait until after Labor Day to start classes is meeting for the first time.

The task force, which meets Thursday in Dover, was formed after state lawmakers passed a resolution earlier this year calling for a study of the issue.

The resolution suggests that starting school after Labor Day could provide an economic boost to Delaware by extending the summer beach tourism season.
