Board approves revised start/end time plan


bus The School Board approved a revision to the 2017-18 school start/end times plan at its meeting on Monday, Feb. 27. One change was made to the plan, which is that Creek Valley Elementary will move to Tier 3 and will have a 9:25 a.m. start time and 4 p.m. end time for the coming school year.

 

The revision to the plan approved by the board on Jan. 9 occurred as a result of further review and assessment by administration at the request of the board. Listening sessions and an online survey gathered input from Creek Valley families and staff in February. The revision to the plan necessitates the purchase of three additional school buses for a one-time investment of $300,000 and extending the average neighborhood bus route by five minutes.

 

The board committed to further study of school start and end times for the 2018-19 school year. Transportation efficiency studies will be conducted in the fall and research on student learning impact will continue.
