As a part of the district's focus on Health and Wellness, we are currently exploring the potential benefits of changes to both our school start times and our daily schedules. Many districts, in New Jersey and across the country, have altered each of these in order to better support students, their families, and staff members.
In the early fall, the Board of Education will be leading a public exploration of the potential benefits and challenges of changing our start times. To this end, we held a public forum on October 21st with panelists of varying experiences and perspectives. Video of that forum, as well as resources presented that evening, can be found below.
We are also providing the resources the Board is using to guide the conversation. Those resources are below.
During the fall, principals at the high school and middle school will be working with their staffs to examine our current daily schedules, examine what other schools, have done, and determine if a change would benefit our students.
We hope you have the voices of our various stakeholders in this conversation.
