Start and End Bell Times

  • Goldrick_Elementary_School_Exterior

    Every year a large number of schools consider adjusting or shifting start and end times to improve academic outcomes for our students. To effectively assess, review and provide feedback on your submittals, Transportation Services has established a timeline and prioritization methodology to guide approval decisions.

    The review and assessment process is designed to consider all requests based upon priority needs and available resources.

    In order to run an efficient and economical transportation system, school start and end times must give buses enough time to complete each route and proceed to the next school. All requests for service changes will be evaluated and prioritized to provide equity and ensure responsible use of resources using the criteria shown below.

    In order to assist you in your submission, we have provided you some helpful tools to facilitate the completion of the form.

    Please remember, your Instructional Superintendent MUST BE INVOLVED in this process.

    The “Menu of Service Fee Schedule” was created to assist schools with cost planning for additional services. The goal of these service rates is for all district and charter schools to pay a reasonable share of the actual cost of the additional services being requested and provided.
