NCPS Focus Group


Update! 


The district is conducting a School Start Times focus group meeting this Wednesday, October 24th from 9-11am in the Wagner Room at NCHS. This promising first step will bring together administration from elementary, middle and high schools; teacher and union representatives; and PTC and parent representatives. The discussion is designed to identify "guiding principles" regarding student sleep and school start times to assist the Board in their decision making.

The meeting will be conducted in public but will not be open to public comment. Interested parents are welcome to observe.
