Are school times already staggered in your district?

School districts in at least 21 states had later start times in 2017 than they did the year before, and school districts in at least 45 states have begun staggering their bell times in recent years. Yet, over 85% of schools still have start times before the recommended 8:30 AM.

Who goes to class first?

Research says that high school students should start last because they benefit the most from the extra hours of sleep, but school policy has been the opposite because parents feel more confident sending older kids out to catch the bus later. What is the right approach for you?

How close are your schools?

Many districts, especially those closer to urban areas, have fewer middle schools than elementary schools, and fewer high schools than middle schools. Even with this design, proximity has a bearing on bell time decisions. 

What kind of before and after school programs are available?

With an increasing number of dual income households, late start times puts different pressure on families. If your district provides before and after school programs, do you provide flexible transportation options to accommodate them? 

Navigating the complexities of healthy start times and safe, efficient transportation requires time, attention, and expertise. Developing a range of transportation options that supports the financial, educational, and operational needs of your district can stress even the largest operations.

SBC has the experts and resources to help you make the problem smaller. We will help you better understand the challenges and opportunities that come with optimizing the resources you have without compromising dollars in the classroom or the safety and health of your students.
