Beginning about a year ago, the Board and I began to discuss the possibility of migrating to later start times in our secondary school schedule. This process of investigation 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.
As we move through this process, we will continue to share resources, data, and scholarly research that we are considering, and more here on our website. In addition, we will seek input from families, students, and others.
In March, the district will conduct a survey of our community to invite feedback on the topic, with a reporting of the results in April. The results, combined with other information we have gathered, will serve to assist us in deciding on the next steps.
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.
