A School Start and Dismissal Time Committee was established under the direction of the Superintendent to gather input from a broad base of stakeholders regarding the possibility of adjusting the start and dismissal times of schools. The committee examined research related to school start times, developed a survey to identify impacts on student well-being, student activities, community activities, and safety.

The Committee on November 17 presented a report to the Board of Education with four alternative models from the current practice. Details, a comparison model, and a link to the full report are available on our website.
