Superintendent to report Monday night
Please come to the BOE meeting this Monday, June 4th at 7:00pm in the Wagner Room at the New Canaan High School.
We have been waiting for over a year and a half for Dr. Luizzi to produce a report to present to the Board. It is only the BOE who can implement a policy for Later Start time. Dr. Luizzi's report may be the final and only factor in the BOE's decision.
We are concerned that the Sleep Survey sent to parents and students last month, which was confusing and lacked context since most of the community hasn't been educated about the benefits of a later start for adolescents, will be given too much weight in the evaluation.
If the superintendent determines there are too many obstacles in implementing a Later Start time, there is a chance that the Board will recommend no further action. This is why it is so important that we show our commitment.
Please bring friends, neighbors, and children, even if you can only come for 15 minutes. We know it's a busy time of year, but try and make every effort to be there.
If you cannot make this meeting, be sure to let Board members know that you support a Later Start time by emailing them.
Hope to see you Monday!
