Folsom Kids Going Back to School so Soon?

Back to schoolWhy Do Our Kids Go Back to School in August?

While it’s still 90+ degrees outside, bbq sauce hasn’t even been cleaned off the grill and goggles still float in the pool, is it too early for our kids to start back to school?

There could be some logic to the early start date.  Proponents say the August start dates allow more instruction time before students take mandatory state achievement tests and Advanced Placement and college-entrance exams.  The  calendar lets students wrap up finals before the three-week winter break and gives high-school students more time to complete college applications.
