At its October 23 regular business meeting, the School Board approved and adopted Blueprint for Change Hybrid Preferred Option #3 for starting high schools later, between 8 and 8:10 a.m. and ending between 2:45 and 2:55 p.m. Middle school students will attend school from 7:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m., and all secondary school students will start at the high school start time. The elementary school window remains unchanged with elementary school students beginning their day between 8 and 9:20 a.m. The change in school start times will take place in the 2015-16 school year. The Board also appointed Pat Hynes to serve as the fourth member of the Audit Committee and recognized November as National Career Development Month.
