Bell Schedules Survey

From EPISD Website

Research shows adolescents need more sleep in order to improve learning, listening, concentration, and memory.

Our buses also can operate more efficiently with more time between the start/end times for the different levels.

The proposed options include more time between start/end times, an earlier start time for elementary schools, later start time for middle schools and high schools, and more instructional time for all students.

We are seeking feedback from the community regarding the proposed options. No decisions have been made regarding these schedules.
