WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Schools employees and parents of students have an opportunity to voice their opinions Wednesday on a proposed calendar change.

Last week, the NHCS calendar committee moved forward with a proposal to move the start of the school calendar year to Aug. 11 in 2020, two weeks earlier than previous years. With this proposal, the school year would end by the Memorial Day holiday.
