Superintendent of Schools Joshua P. Starr has recommended that MCPS consider pushing back high school start times by 50 minutes and extending the elementary school day by 30 minutes. The recommendation is based on the report of the 2013 Bell Times Work Group, which studied the issue around school starting and ending times for more than 9 months. The next step in the process is an extensive communication and outreach plan to gather input from a broad array of stakeholders, including students, staff, parents, and community members.
