Research and Resources
Background Information
  • The FY2016 Superintendent’s Wellness Committee examined issues of sleep and school start times, and how they affect the health and well being of our students.  On June 9, 2016, the committee presented its finding to the AB School Committee.  See the slides and watch the video.  The committee also issued a full report.  

Start Time Possible Options
The School District is in the process of evaluating options for changes to our school start times.  See a flyer and link to an overview of the various options for school start times, which would go into effect in the fall of 2018.  

School Bus Routing Options
Changing the start times of our schools may require modifying our school busing system.  To support these changes, a review was conducted of our current transportation system and the changes that might be required to support changes to our school start times.  On April 27, 2017 a presentation was made to the AB School Committee, describing the findings of the review.  See the slides and read the full report.
