To the editor:
Last week, school board members voted to return to traditional start times at all 19 schools in our district. This vote was done without public input or discussion, an under-the-radar-type vote ensued, and our educational leaders are saddled with the consequences of an ill-advised policy change.
This change is calculated to cost more than $1.75 million this year. We have to purchase buses, hire drivers, lose state dollars through reductions in efficiency ratings, and more.
