Albany-- Dougherty County School leaders are fine-tuning a plan to stagger school start times after several complaints from parents and staff.
Right now, many students don't get to school on-time due to bussing issues. To ease the problem school officials proposed staggering start times for elementary, middle and high schools. But some parents and teachers complained the proposed times were too early or late.
There are now some new time options on the table. School Superintendent Dr. Sally Whatley says the goal is to make sure students get a full day in school.
"The purpose of the staggered school time or start time is to guard our instructional day and to ensure that our buses arrive on time and that our departure is within a ten minute time frame at the end of the day," said Whatley.
Under the new proposal, elementary schools would begin at 8 a.m. and end at 2:30. Buses would arrive at 7:30 a.m. Middle and high schools would start at 8:40 a.m. and end at 3:40. Buses would arrive at 8:10.
Parents will receive letters in the mail with proposed times. A final recommendation may be made to the school board at their April 30th meeting.
