Study Session on School Start/End Times Planned for Dec. 5

As we prepare to open our ninth school in August, the district must evaluate the impact Estrella Foothills Global Academy will have on our bus transportation services and, in turn, school start and end times.

On Thursday, December 5 at 6:00 p.m., the Governing Board will hold a study session to review the possible changes to school start/end times beginning in the 2020-21 school year. 

We anticipate that the options being considered will be presented to the Board at their regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Thursday, December 12 at 5:30 p.m. Information regarding the options being considered will be shared following this week’s study session.
