It's every student's dream come true.

Wisconsin's students are enjoying an extra long summer vacation this year because of a new state law that pushes back the start of school.

Most public school districts let students out in early June. The new law Gov. McCallum signed in January moves the start of school back to Labor Day.

For most students, it means about 10 extra days of summer vacation.

The tourism industry lobbied for the later start date, saying they need student employees at restaurants and hotels for the Labor Day weekend.

Educators fought the law, saying they should decide what dates are best for their communities.
