As you may know, we’ve been looking into the possibility of changing school start times – some elementary and all middle schools may be changed. This process started in 2014 when several families, staff and students asked us to explore the topic. Since then, we’ve gathered research and conducted surveys to understand the impact any potential change to school start times would have. 

Next Steps

If the board votes to move forward, we'll have a planning year in 2018-19 and are proposing a phased-in approach over three years:start-times-proposed.png
