CLEVELAND -- Would you be in favor of an earlier start to the school year?

What about having your child in classes year-round?

Those topics are now up for discussion in Cleveland.

A public hearing is scheduled Tuesday night for the community to weigh in on a proposal to begin the Cleveland Metropolitan School District's 2014-2015 school year six days earlier.

The district CEO believes an early Aug. 13 start could serve as part of a transition to year-round classes.

The 2013-2014 school year began on Aug. 19, for most schools.

The meeting will be held at Mound-STEM PreK-8 School, 5935 Ackley Rd, at 6:30pm.

Currently, MC2STEM High School has a year-round schedule. Students alternate 10 weeks of classes with three-week breaks.

The board has to vote on a new calendar before May 1.
