The state Senate has already begun debate about introducing legislation that would overturn Governor Hogan’s mandate. Nancy King, who represents Montgomery County, is one of the sponsors of the bill.
According to Cheryl Kagan, the legislation will have its final vote in Maryland’s Senate on Tuesday.
O’Neill said that the school board supports this legislation.
“Educators and school boards should make the decisions related to the school calendar and what’s in the best interest of children,” she said. “Every school system in the state of Maryland should decide for themselves what works for their community with the calendar.”
