Robbinsdale School Start Times Changing for 2022-23 School Year

The Board has engaged in a comprehensive process to explore the benefits of changing school start times since the 2017-2018 academic year. The Board’s goal was to shift high schools to a later start time while minimizing additional transportation costs.

Through a bell time analysis, seven possible schedules were brought forward to the Board during the 2019-2020 school year. In December 2020, the School Board voted to change school start times, but didn’t determine when the change would happen.

The Board voted April 19. 2021 to change school start times beginning with the 2022-2023 school year.
