Bethel School Start Time Committee meets tonight

A Parent Information and Feedback Session is being held in Bethel tonight about the final School Start Time options. The committee is recommending three tiers.  High Schoolers along with St. Mary’s, Nonnewaug, and Abbott Tech start times around 7:45am, the Middle School at 8:20 with Berry, Rockwell and Johnson schools at 9am.  The school district says the cost impact will be minimal with students gaining about 10 minutes in the morning.  A challenge would be to share resources between Bethel High and Middle schools, with increased community stops for the middle school.


Bethel School Start Time Committee meets tonight

The Bethel School Start Times Committee continues to examine possible changes in schedules.  The committee felt that there was not enough support in a recent survey of stakeholder groups to flip secondary and elementary times, eliminating that option.  Those opposed cited increased cost of aftercare and getting kids up before 7:30 being too early.  The committee will be reconvening tonight to discuss a final recommendation. On November 12th, there will be an informational meeting for parents on the final option. The meeting will be at 6PM in the BHS Auditorium.
