Carroll Community School Board on Monday approved 3-2 an early start for the 2012-13 school year.

The early-start calendar will make the first day of next school year Tuesday, Aug. 14, with the first semester ending Friday, Dec. 21, before the start of winter break.

Second semester will begin Monday, Jan. 7, 2013, and the school year will end Wednesday, May 15, 2013.

Is this the right decision?
