School Board to hear report Tuesday on changing start times; no decision expected


The Edmonds School Board will hear a report on Tuesday regarding school start times.

The School Start Times Task Force decided in February to recommend to the board to shift all start times back by 25 minutes. That decision was made after thousands of school district families and community members responded to a survey earlier this year.

The Board is not expected to make a decision as to whether or not to implement the change during Tuesday’s meeting. However, it will be the first time the Board will hear the recommendation.

Along with a presentation by School Start Times Task Force, the Board will review quantitative data from the survey and 51 pages of comments from survey participants.
