School Board Proposal: Start One Day A Week An Hour Late


The Springfield school board is considering a schedule change for next year that would have all city public school students start their day one hour late, one day per week… so that teachers can use that time for collaboration and professional development.

 

District officials say the change would result in fewer days off for students because there would be fewer teacher in-service days.

 

And they are working on plans to provide day care at elementary schools for younger children during that one-hour late start each week.

 

But they acknowledge the change would complicate school bus schedules and could make life difficult for parents trying to get their kids off to school and get to work on time.
