Update: Start and End Times Discussion

In the Spring of 2018, RSU #34 surveyed the community about differentiating bus runs; these changes would affect school start and end times and create opportunities for students.  Change is also disruptive; while many respondents were in favor of the proposed changes some challenges were illuminated that we needed to plan for to do this well.  

We've addressed nearly all of those challenges with the revised draft at the link below.  As we consider the pros and cons of such changes and prepare to make a recommendation to the School Board, we seek input and feedback about the gains students could realize from the shift and the challenges we would need to plan for. 

The revised draft, along with an overview of the gains and challenges to plan for, can be seen here:  Slideshow:  http://tinyurl.com/y2gr383m , Document:  http://tinyurl.com/y57jspk9 

We've created a form for input and feedback (http://tinyurl.com/y2sgmluq).  Please don't hesitate to reach out to your school principal or district administrators with questions, and please also know there will be another public comment period at the May School Board meeting.  (Wednesday May 15th, 6:30 PM at Leonard Middle School).
