Board Issues Statement on 2018-19 School Start Times

The Board of Education is expected to not implement new school start times for the 2018-19 school year. In June 2017, the Board passed a motion directing the Administration to implement early start times for the coming school year.

After consultation with city and county transportation officials, it has been determined there are no viable solutions for the 2018-19 school year. City and county leaders are still reviewing SR-248 and working on solutions that will improve traffic conditions along the corridor in the future.

It is anticipated the Board and District Administration will continue discussing school start times during master planning later this fall.

  1. This is disappointing. There was a year to figure out the kinks and yet it wasn’t done. Please please get the later start times figured out by 19/20 and while your at it let’s do the grade realignment!!!!

  2. ” continue discussing “?
    Please take the time and the resources to educate the community on these very important issues and let’s make these things happen.
    Much like the bond and grade realignment-We are better than “continue discussing”.
    Thank you

  3. I think you are going to see a lot of kids opting for “late start” at the high school and not taking a first period class, if they can afford to do so academically, to avoid having to start school at 7:35 am. It is unreasonable to ask high school age kids with demanding academic schedules, and athletics that often don’t conclude until 9 pm, to be at school at 7:35 am.
