in what could be an early preview to a possible initiated measure on school start dates students in grand forks won’t begin the 2014-15 year until after labor day. the grand forks school board agreed this week to the later than usual start date. two-thirds of all parents…students…and staff responding to a survey favored the post labor day move. assistant superintendent jody thompson says the results weren’t even close. classes will start september 2nd and end june 4th. graduation day will be june 7th. under the traditional calendar school would have started august 20th.
