A Delaware state Senate panel says that the school term should begin after Labor Day in September to bring the state in line with the busy summer season.

The later start is aimed at helping businesses keep employees as well as allow high school students to earn more money.

This would also encourage visitors to stay later in the summer.

Archie Kohr, owner of Archie’s ice cream shop in Rehoboth, told WBOC that he thinking having student through the Labor Day weekend would help the local economy.
