No Change to School Start Times

School start times will remain the same for the 2013-14 school year after an ad hoc committee studying the issue found that changing start times would substantially increase costs and decrease the efficiency of the transportation program.

The committee, consisting of school administrators, parents and transportation personnel, was convened after results of a survey conducted in the fall of 2012 showed Lee Eaton parents in particular preferred the school day to start and end later.

The committee investigated several possibilities, including switching the middle school and Lee Eaton start times and delaying the start time of each school in the district. Because the district is responsible under state law for providing transportation to private and charter school students and students placed out of district, changing district start times would not be possible without adding additional drivers and routes.
