WARREN, Mich. (WJBK) -

Monday marked the first day of school for some students at Warren Consolidated Schools.

Holden, Fillmore and Siersma Elementary Schools are just a few in the districts that have switched to year-round scheduled.

Officials say the goal is to cut down on summer learning loss and close achievement gaps.

"It's a balance calendar," said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Robert D. Livernois. "It is essentially the same number of school days as a traditional year, it's just sliced a little bit differently."

Traditionally, schools in Warren start the school year after Labor Day.
