School Start Time Changes Coming? Virtual Town Hall On Mar. 30, Survey In Mid-April, School Committee To Discuss Apr. 27 & Vote On May 11

WILMINGTON, MA — At last week’s Wilmington School Committee Meeting, Superintendent Dr. Glenn Brand provided an update on the district’s efforts to change school start times for the 2022-2023 school year.

On Wednesday, March 30, 2022 at 7:30pm, the Wilmington PAWS (Parent/Guardian Advocates For Wilmington Schools) Group is holding a Virtual Town Hall on School Start Times. Brand — and members of the School Start Time Committee — will be on hand to discuss the proposed start time options.

Attendees will:

  • Learn more about the proposed school start time scenarios under consideration.
  • Hear perspectives from the district, transportation team, educators and parents to weigh the pros and cons of each scenario.
  • Get answers to parents’ pre-submitted questions and join other parents for live Q&A.

The district will email a survey to parents and guardians on or around April 12, 2022 to gather feedback on proposed start time options. The survey will close the week of April 19, 2022.

The School Committee will discuss the survey results at its meeting on Wednesday, April 27, 2022 and potentially vote on school start time changes on Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

The district also recently launched a website dedicated to the School Start Time Change discussion, which includes past presentations of the Start Time Committee.
