Survey on Tiered School Starts

During the last 2 weeks parents, public and school staff has had the opportunity to ask questions and offer thoughts on the tiered school starts proposal. Hopefully there is a understanding of how tiered would work. At this stage we have a short survey. It would be very helpful for anyone impacted by the change of school start and end times to take this survey. Please click on the link:

I have been very impressed by the serious consideration many have taken regarding the Tiered School Starts proposal.  I thank all those that took the time to respond.  It is very helpful to this process to hear what folks are wondering about or thinking.


Many of the responses were simply questions about this proposal.  I have attempted to consolidate the questions asked in this document.


After reading this if you need further clarification, send me an email and I will do my best to respond individually gdrescher@wcps.k12.va.us.  
In a couple of weeks I will send out an update on the process.
