Happening Now

Fall 2021 Update:
The School Start Time Task Force has worked with the school district to analyze the information from the hired consultant,  School Bus Logistics.  The task force has met with the Board of Education and reported the findings and their recommendations.  The district will be working with the BOE on next steps.


The task force meets regularly and there are three working teams. The focus areas are:

  • Engage in understanding of community needs and impacts of changing school start times

  • Review the research on school start time effects on student learning and health; Research other school districts who have explored or made this change

  • Clearly define the pros and cons of creating a consistent district-wide start time by grade level

The Task Force

Jeffco Public Schools assembled a task force to look at the logistics and impacts of changing school start times across the district. Here is more from Dr. Glass about the task force. The task force consists of 50 volunteers and a few staff from all areas of our school district. The teams will work over the summer and then the full group will meet again in the fall.
The working/sharing site for the task force is on a Google website, and there is also a conversation group page on Facebook
