NEW START TIMES APPROVED FOR STUDENTS AND STAFF AT THREE RIVERS LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT

Posted on: May 16, 2018

After five months, six board meetings, three parent/community forums, and much discussion, on May 15, 2018, the Three Rivers Board of Education approved (with a 3-2 vote) the changing of the start times to pave the way for common planning time. These changes will go into effect for the 2018-2019 school year.

“I understand the challenges that we are facing with multiple start times and the inconveniences some of our community members have voiced. We already have several new ideas to start addressing these concerns and will continue to explore additional options as we move through the summer that are more affordable and convenient for our families at Three Rivers,” Superintendent Craig Hockenberry emphasized following the Board Meeting. He went on to support the decision by saying, “Despite some of the opposition, we know a later start time will positively impact students and increase teacher collaboration, benefitting the whole child.”
