Dear Central Bucks Community,
More than 11,000 individuals participated in the CBSD high school start times survey conducted this past spring, including more than 4,000 parents and 5,000 students. See the results, linked at left (and below). The district will now work with its consultants at Hanover Research to gather additional, more detailed research that answers some critical questions in order to inform our next steps.
This surveying was a step in a process that started more than a year ago, when the administration and school board began to discuss the possibility of migrating to later start times in the district's secondary school schedule.
A thorough investigation of this matter will take time, but the Board and administration are committed to exploring it fully in order to determine if it’s right for our community, our students, and our schools. Throughout, we will continue to share resources, data, and scholarly research that we are considering - here on our website.
Thank you for your support as we consider new ways to serve our students and meet the needs of all learners in the Central Bucks School District.
John J. Kopicki, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
