PTAC - School Start/Dismissal TImes created: Jan. 3, 2017

Dear PTA Presidents and Delegates, 

At the Jan. 2, 2017 PTACHC meeting, the following motion was made and passed regarding the proposed school start/dismissal time that has been proposed to the Board of Education.  

 Approved Motion:  

PTACHC express support for continued discussion of new models for a healthy start time options, but the current 4 models that have been presented are unacceptable and therefore, we are supporting staying with the current start time.

 Motion passed: 40 for motion, 8 against motion

 Reminder, PTAs cannot take a position that is opposite to the Council's but can encourage individual members to testify at the Feb. 7 public hearing at 7 pm on this proposal of changing the school start/dismissal time.  

 For information on the four proposed models on start/dismissal times, go to:  http://www.hcpss.org/schools/opening-and-closing-times/committee/comparison-overview/

 http://www.hcpss.org/news-posts/2016/11/board-considers-school-start-dismissal-time-adjustment-proposals/

  Thank you for all you do for advocating for every child with one voice.
