Why don’t we just revert to the start times from last year?

Starting schools later has been a priority for the Board of Education and Superintendent. On Tuesday, Aug. 29, as we began to study the data to develop and model plans, we wanted to preserve as much of the spirit of the school start times initiative as possible even as we made adjustments within what the Board of Education Policy 5200 Student Transportation - Implementation Procedures allowed. 

Compared to the 2022–2023 school year, high schools will start at 7:50 a.m. instead of 7:25 a.m.—a 25-minute difference—and students will now be dropped off at 7:30 a.m. instead of between 6:55-7:00 a.m., which is a 30–35-minute difference.
