Update on the School Start Times Study
Since fall, a committee has been meeting to research and explore school start times options. The consideration of adjusting start times stems from interest in secondary schools  beginning later, based on community feedback received through Thoughtexchange engagement activities, as well as research that points to numerous benefits for teens. T he District's high school and middle school schedules currently begin at 7:40 a.m. 

In November/December, the committee launched a survey with four potential options. That survey resulted in varied feedback across all options with no single option receiving more than 50% support. Since then the group has determined a couple of the options are not feasible, due to a combination of transportation considerations, associated costs, and increased staffing that would be needed.  Currently, the committee is considering two options, and would like community feedback again. 

Coming soon... 
On Friday, March 23, the District will be launching a second School Start Times survey to gather input on two possible start time schedules.

Please watch for this in District E-News and the website, and be sure to share your preference. Potential changes could involve all grade levels (elementary and secondary), so feedback from all perspectives is valued and appreciated.  The recommendation and timing of possible changes is still to be determined. Updates on the work of the School Start Times Advisory Committee are posted online
