Middle School Start Times Modified for the 2016-2017 School Year

schooltimesTo improve on-time student delivery for the 2016-2017 school year, middle school bell times have been modified. These changes were necessary to allow additional time between bus runs and supported by recommendations generated through the Council of Great City Schools recent peer review.

Our buses and drivers are utilized to serve all three school levels with middle schools in the third tier of bus runs. For the majority of middle schools, a 20-minute shift in the school day was required.

The standard middle school schedule will change from 9:10 a.m.-3:45 p.m. to 9:30 a.m.- 4:05 p.m.for the start of the 2016 school year beginning August 15.

This change will also help ensure students arrive to school in time to participate in the District’s free breakfast program.
