The Nov. 29 trial date was scheduled Monday during a pretrial hearing in Salem Superior Court.
Laboy has pleaded not guilty to charges of fraud and embezzlement for allegedly using school department employees and resources for his own purposes, and to one count of illegal possession of alcohol on school property.
Laboy, hired in 2000, was fired by the School Committee in April 2010, about a month after he was indicted and arraigned.
Some 6,000 pieces of evidence have been submitted in the case, including school contracts, travel and expense documents, grand jury testimony
