Public schools in Jefferson County will start the 2008-09 school year nine days earlier than normal, on Aug. 12.

Jefferson County also is bringing back a fall mini-break, with schools closing Thursday and Friday, Oct. 23 and 24.

The early start time was instigated to allow extra time for CSAP preparation so students can finish classroom testing before Christmas break.
