    START TIMES UPDATE

    At the April 11 School Board meeting, the administration presented an additional start times option that was developed with the help of a transportation consultant. The Board discussed the advantages and challenges of the additional option and compared it to the previous options shared with the community. In agreement with the medical evidence and research that later high school start times would better align with teens’ unique sleep needs, the Board indicated a preference for an option that features an 8:35 a.m. high school start time. To review the two options that feature an 8:35 a.m. high school start time, and to provide feedback on the options, please visit www.moundsviewschools.org/starttimes. The Board will review the feedback and make a decision at the April 25 Board meeting for implementation in fall 2018.
