The Whitnall School District's new plan to give teachers time to collaborate by adjusting school start and release times may get revamped.
District officials have considered letting elementary students out of school early on certain days and having school start late for middle and high school students some days. But that may depend on the results of a parent survey that the School Board approved Monday night.
Some parents have been vocal about the problems the plan, which is expected to take effect this fall, could pose for their family schedules ever since the board approved it in January.
Although school officials are developing programs for children who would have to stay in school on those early release days, some parents and even some School Board members said they wanted to know more about that before they could support the plan.
All those objections were voiced Monday, which spurred the board to suggest gathering parental input through a survey on the start and release times. The survey results should come back to the School Board in April.
