Albany -- After almost two months of discussions, Dougherty County School Board members approved new school start times Monday night.
They say the change will increase efficiency and reliability of bussing schedules.
The school system held two forums last week to get parents' input, but few parents showed up.
The new start times will go into effect next school year.
"I think this will result in more efficient running of our transportation system. But, more importantly, it will protect our school day, allowing kids to get to school on time and for classes to begin in a timely manner," said R.D. Harter, Dougherty County School System Public Information Director.
Under the new schedule, elementary students will begin classes thirty minutes earlier, at 8:00 a.m. Classes for Middle and High school students will start twenty minutes later than previous years, at 8:40 a.m.
