New!   School Start Time Update

Proposals have been presented at the recent BOE meeting for new school start times.

  • The Rethinking School Start Times (RSST) Committee presented to the BOE opportunities and challenges to changing school start times.
  • There were four scenarios proposed for new school start times.  The Board has eliminated option 1 (High School start time @ 8:30) and Option 3 (Late start Wednesday replacing Early Dismissal Wednesday).
  • They are now left with Option 2 (please see below) or Option 4 (retain the current school start/end times).
  • There will be two more BOE meetings on Nov 7th and Nov 20th before the BOE makes the final decision that will affect the entire town.
