S-G plans to opt out of school start date law

Leader Reporter

The Shawano-Gresham School Board will hold a public hearing in July to start the 2000-2001 school year before Sept. 1.

School districts have to hold such a hearing to opt out of the state law that requires all schools to start after Sept. 1. The public sessions can be held before July 1, but action can't be taken by the board until then or later because it marks the start of the fiscal school year.

The proposed 2000-2001 calendar created by Shawano-Gresham teachers starts the year on August 28 and ends June 7.

The third and final day of snowmobile races in the Menominee Ice Challenge was canceled Sunday because of poor track conditions.

"The race track just disintegrated," during Saturday's featured race, said Karl Schwartz of Saginaw, Mich., president of the Midwest International Racing Association.

The cancellation of the races, along with other problems, prompted Shawano Area Chamber of Commerce officials to call off the Northern Exposure winter festival Sunday. (See story on Page A1.)
