ACTION ITEM: Please stay engaged! We will need to continue to actively support the school board's work to reach its goal to start high schools after 8:00 a.m. to benefit the health, well-being, and performance of students. With strong consensus, the board agreed to post Superintendent Garza's preferred plan as New Business on September 18th. The preferred plan for implementation in 2015-2016 is a significant improvement over the current situation. In addition, Dr. Garza indicated her goal to continue working to get the middle school start times closer to 8 a.m. in the future! The board expects to vote on the final plan in October. This timeline allows plenty of lead time for Fairfax families and stakeholders to adapt personal schedules.
