About the Committee
LWSD’s Start Time Committee has been meeting since September. This committee has been tasked with making a recommendation to me for high schools to start no earlier than 8:00 a.m. and to move preschool start and end times earlier in the day. Changing start times for one level has impacts across the system, so changing high school start times also will impact middle and elementary school students, families, and staff.
The committee includes parents and staff from multiple perspectives across the different high school feeder areas and has met six times with one additional meeting left to make their recommendation.
