Some Durham, Johnston Students To Get Early Start To School Year

— Durham and Johnston counties can each open one high school earlier than the rest this fall.

The State Board of Education granted waivers to the new school calendar law for the "middle college" programs in both of those counties.

Both schools meet at area colleges, which start earlier in August than the new law allows.
