Students in Allen County get a few extra days of summer vacation .
A delay in the shipment of geo-thermal equipment is forcing Allen County schools to open on Aug. 6, 2007, rather than Aug. 2 as originally scheduled.
Allen County Superintendent, Randall Jackson, said the start date had to be pushed back.
He said there's been a delay in the shipment of some key components of new geothermal units being installed at James E. Bazzel Middle School.
Faculty and staff will still report Aug. 1 as scheduled, but again Allen County schools will not open until Monday, Aug. 6.
