The end of summer will come sooner this year for students in the Los Angeles Unified School District.

The 2012-2013 school year begins Aug. 14, three weeks earlier than usual. The so-called "early start calendar" allows students to complete their first semester before winter break.

Superintendent John Deasy said that's been shown to have a positive impact on final examinations and grades.

The new calendar also means an earlier start to the summer next year. Students will get out of school June 4.
