School Start Times District Team

Our district team has developed a plan that they believe will work and provide better outcomes for our middle school students in many areas. The proposed plan has some late start elementary schools moving to the early start time so that middle schools could start later. The plan would be phased in over a three-year period after a full year of planning.
