Garrett School Start Date Iowa Code section 279.10 says that public schools in Iowa are to begin their school year on "a day during the calendar week in which the first day of September falls." However, schools can request a waiver of this require- ment to avoid a "significant negative educational im- pact." There is no definition of that phrase, so the De-. partment of Education approves all the waiver requests it receives. Nearly every school district requests a waiver allowing them to start early. School districts argue that they should have local control over start dates so that they can do what they believe is best for their district. Members of the tourism industry requested a tighter standard for the granting of waivers. Under their pro- posal if a district wanted to start no more than a week earl34 the school board would only have to pass a reso- lution stating that there would be a negative effect on education if the waiver was not granted. To get a start date more than a week before the date set out in the code, the district would have to show that the later date would harm students and the district would have to provide evidence to back up the claim. The Board of Education voted down the proposal. The Governor has said that he believes the current practice .is too lax. There have been unsuccessful efforts in the legislature to change the law on school start dates. I expect the controversy to continue. Iowa Economy Remains Strong The Iowa economy continues to perform well accord- ing to figures for June released by Iowa Workforce De- velopment. The unemployment rate remains at 4.6%. O This compares to 5.3 go in June of 2012. The current na- tional rate is 7.6%. There are almost 27,000 more people working in Iowa than in June of 2012. In terms of numbers, there are now 1,577,200 Iowans working and 76,500 unemployed. As always, feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns at Julian.Garrett@legis.iowa.gov or 515-281- 3221.
