Back to School Year Round Calendar

July 12, 2012 - 12:35 PM
Students return for their first day of classes at Barwell Road Elementary School in Raleigh, N.C., Monday, July 9, 2012. Monday was the first day of school for 26,000 kids on a year-round calendar in the Wake County, N.C., public school system. With local enrollments increasing, the staggered schedules of the year-round calendar, called multitracking, allow schools to accommodate more students because they’re not all in school at the same time.
