Palatine Township Elementary District 15 will begin its 2013-14 school year Monday, Aug. 26, a week later than it originally proposed.
Negative feedback prompted the move. Of more than 400 people who responded to a website survey on the issue, 75 percent opposed beginning Aug. 19. The last day of school, barring any snow days, will be Friday, June 6.
The board of education adopted the calendar this week.
