Later Start Time Update

Dear Newton Families,

This fall, we have been conducting extensive community outreach to gather feedback on the potential changes to a later high school start time. Thank you to all who attended the community forum, participated in PTO meetings, and sent emails. We appreciate the time you have taken to provide us with your thoughts on the potential impact of this change to your family and/or organization.

Many of you have already provided feedback on the six scenarios currently under consideration. Your feedback has been received and documented. For those who have not yet weighed in, or for those who would like to provide additional feedback, I ask that you please visit our website at: www.newton.k12.ma.us/laterstarttime. On our website you will find detailed information on the six scenarios, as well as a survey link through which you can share your thoughts. The survey will be open from November 23rd to December 7th. The High School Start Time Working Group will be sharing community feedback to the School Committee in a formal presentation on December 12th.

Thank you for your patience as we consider this significant change and the implications it may have in our district. We appreciate your participation and will continue to keep you updated on the process.

Sincerely,

 

David Fleishman

Superintendent of Schools
