  Kentucky students would start the school year later under legislation that will be considered in the 2016 General Assembly.

State Senator Damon Thayer will sponsor a bill that would send students back to school in late August. Some education leaders believe the start date should remain a local decision, but Thayer argues the legislature should have a say.
