Speak Out: Will New School Start/End Times Impact You?
The school system's new transportation plan will go into effect this school year.
A new transportation plan was approved by the school board in May of 2011 that is expected to save the school system about $1.2 million.
The new transportation plan, designed to save the county money starting in fiscal year 2013, means bus drivers will have to take on more routes, requiring schools to adjust start and end times.
Most schools will only be affected by a 15 to 30 minute shift but some schools will see significant shifts such as Eldersburg Elementary which will start at 7:45 a.m., an hour and twenty minutes earlier than the previous start time of 9:05 a.m.
