Thank you for your interest in the district’s School Start and End Time Review. While the Start Time Review webpage,, has a wealth of information about the process, the ISD 199 Start Time Review Committee of staff, parents, and community members has narrowed its options down to two:
  1. Remain with the current start and end times for all students. With this option, there would be no changes to the school day or the bus times for students.
  2. “Flip” the secondary and elementary schedules. This model would have elementary students starting their school day at 7:50 AM and ending their school day at 2:30 PM. Secondary students would begin at 8:30 AM and end at 3:20 PM.

After reviewing the decision-making information and research on the Start Time Review webpage, please take a few moments to share what you believe are three positive aspects of each option and three concerns raised with each option. This survey will be open until June 8.

As noted in district communications, the ISD 199 Start and End Time Review Committee and School Board will review information and move forward with a final decision, likely in the fall of 2018. Any changes would be made at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year so the community has a year to transition.
