History of Time and Schedule Investigation

School Committee Work on Start Times in 2014 & 2015

Dear Members of the Natick Public Schools Community:    

At this time, you can still send feedback to the School Committee at – [email protected] or Superintendent Peter Sanchioni at – [email protected]

 At the School Committee meeting on Monday, September 22, 2014, the Committee passed a resolution to consider the following schedule as a potential start-time change.   

Difference from Current Times
Kennedy and Wilson     7:45 - 2:00         5 Minutes Earlier Start
Natick High School        8:15 - 3:02        45 Minutes Later Start Time
Ben-Hem                        8:35 – 2:50        20 Minutes Later Start Time
Brown                             8:35 – 2:50        5 Minutes Later Start Time
Johnson                          8:35 – 2:50        5 Minutes Later Start Time
Lilja                                  8:35 – 2:50        5 Minutes Later Start Time
Memorial                        8:35 – 2:50        15 Minutes Later Start Time

In order to provide clarity about possible changes to the high school class schedule, to after-school help with teachers, to after-school activities, and to students' ability to maintain work schedules, the Committee has directed the Superintendent to form an Implementation Task Force.  This task force will be comprised of high school staff, Natick Public Schools' and Natick High School Administration, and School Committee members to examine the logistical impact of the potential change described above.  Findings of this task force will be shared at an upcoming School Committee meeting.   Families will be invited and encouraged to follow this process.
