Schools bells re-arranged

June 12, 2008 

Albany - Dougherty County School administrators finalized a plan to stagger school start  times for next school year.  The school board approved staggered times last month to improve bus scheduling.

It was up to administrators to work out details, and they made some changes to the plan that was publicized. 

Elementary school will start at 8:00, Middle school starts at 8:15, and high school at 8:45.

"There's a certain amount of time each class period needs to be effective in the instructional day and you have to allow time between for class changes and bells and those kinds of things.  In allocating that time, there wasn't enough time for periods required with the bell schedule set so they asked for fifteen more minutes to be distributed throughout the day for their class times," says R. D. Harter of the Dougherty County School System. School starts back August 6th.
