What is the impact of consistently late buses?

Currently, thousands of students are arriving at school after the first bell—some coming a few minutes late and some missing significant instructional and support time. This consistent tardiness will undoubtedly have a detrimental impact on the instruction and supports students receive while at school and needs to be addressed.  

Additionally, asking students and staff to remain at school long after dismissal is untenable as it requires staff to be available to provide oversight while students wait at the school for their bus.
