New Start Times for All Schools & Bus Route Information

May 22, 2013

The District met with a task force made up of parents from each level and hosted two public informational forums on proposed changes to the start times. District administration examined the impact of start times on student learning and other school operations. Research shows a later start time is advantageous for adolescents to ensure quality learning.

In order to implement the new start time schedule, the District will run a two-tier busing system with middle and high school students riding together. Elementary buses will continue to transport only elementary students. The middle school will offer before school activities to accommodate family schedules, and program information will be sent this summer.
