Speak Out!

July 10, 2005

ISSUE: Last week, Anne Arundel County school board members considered testimony from school transportation officials and parents from Annapolis and Severna Park high schools about school operating hours.

Supervisor of Transportation Winship Wheatley explained several options to change the high school start time of 7:17 a.m., the earliest in the state. These included shifting the time all schools begin by about 15 minutes, picking up high school students after elementary and middle-schoolers instead of before them, and hiring more bus drivers and purchasing more buses to delay the start time of just high school students - at a substantial cost.

YOUR VIEW: How would changing the start times affect students and your community? Tell us what you think at arundel.speakout@baltsun.com by Thursday. Please keep your response short, and include your name, address and phone number. A selection will be published Sunday.
