BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Governor Larry Hogan is expected to mandate this week that Maryland schools open after Labor Day in future school years.
This year, students in 24 out of 25 districts have already reported to their first day of class.
Worcester County is the only Maryland district with a post-Labor Day start. It houses one of the state’s biggest vacation spots, Ocean City.
That’s where Hogan will be joined by Comptroller Peter Franchot at a press conference scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday.
Franchot has been outspoken in his support for a post-Labor Day start date for two years, since an economic impact report showed it’s worth more than $74 million to the economy.
