School Start Times Update - Survey Complete
On March 8, the District launched a survey to obtain feedback on the 2019-2020 school start time option. Current T/E parents, middle/high school students and staff members had the opportunity to take the survey, which closed on March 18. The District received over 7,000 responses to the survey. District staff are in the process of compiling and analyzing the survey data. Survey results will be posted when the analysis is complete and will be discussed at the April 11, 2019 School Board Education Committee meeting, which will be held at 7:00 pm in the Tredyffrin/Easttown Administration Offices.
