Bell Schedule Evaluation - 2019 -2020

Bell Schedule Evaluation

Purpose: To design and implement the process used to solicit input, analyze the data, and make recommendations to the larger Bell Schedule Committee. 

Bell Schedule FAQ 

Our 2015-16 Schedule Advisory Committee did extensive research and sought input from our parents, students and community to develop the desired outcomes of our school bell schedule. The district values the work and dedication of this original group and will continue to support the desired outcomes of the SAC Schedule Recommendation as we modify our current bell schedule to comply with instructional minute regulations and new legislation.

Stakeholders, you have another opportunity to give input!

Thank you to all the parents, students and staff who attended our Stakeholder Input Sessions which were held on Nov 7, Nov 14 and Nov 15, 2019. 

We asked our stakeholders these questions:

1. In what important ways does our current bell schedule work well (for students, for parents, for staff)?

2. What important needs are not being addressed well by our current bell schedule (for students, for parents, for staff)?

3. If we were to modify one thing about our current bell schedule what do you think it should be?

4. Our Governor signed a bill into law requiring that high schools adopt 8:30 start times. What do you think the potential impact of this would be at our school?

5. What question(s) do you need answered?
