School Start Times Initiative

Overview

  •  

    Dear Pine-Richland Families:

    Information about school start times has been shared with our community at various points over the last year through written updates, board committee School Start Times meetings, and strategic updates.
     
    As referenced in the superintendent’s monthly update, the district continues to refine communication methods on critical topics. To accomplish this, the district produced a podcast that outlines key information related to school start times. Please invest 10 minutes to listen and watch this school start times podcast. The goal is to concisely and accurately describe the process and emerging recommendation. Additional effort was made to share the thinking and considerations of the committee throughout this process.
     
    Also, please visit our website at www.pinerichland.org/starttimes for additional resources and materials.
     
    Sincerely,
    Dr. Michael Pasquinelli, Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Education & Curriculum
    Dr. Kristen Silbaugh, Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education & Curriculum
