School Start Times


School Start Time Study 
  • The ABRSD School Start Time Committee has spent the 2016-2017 school year evaluating options for changes to our school start times.  On June 8, 2017, the results of their study were presented to the AB School Committee.   See the slides and read the final report.  

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.  

Additional Research and Resources


Start Time Community Survey
  • In May 2017, the School Start Time Committee conducted a community survey to gather feedback from stakeholders on start time options. The brief on-line survey was sent to all ABRSD parents/guardians and all ABRSD staff members.  See the results of the community survey.  

Start Time Possible Options

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.
