VINCENNES, Ind. (WVUT) - The start of the 2018-2019 Vincennes Community School Corporation school year may get off to a later start than previous years.

Vincennes School Superintendent Greg Parsley said he'd been asked by a few people about possibly moving the start of school back one week.

A survey was sent out and there was a two to one margin that voted in favor of starting school a week later than previously.

While the board approved of the calendar for the 2018-2019 school year, Parsley did mention that changing the start date meant trimming off a few days. Some of the days taken away were 3 days from Christmas break, the Friday before President's Day, and Easter Monday.

Parsley also told the school board during the meeting that there is currently discussion within the Indiana General Assembly where they may have a say when school starts.

If that legislature goes through, school may not start until August 26th.
