Late School Start Exploration Background

On July 14, 2020, the Board of Education approved the creation of a district school-based Later School Start Time Committee with members from our students, teachers, administrators and community.  The committee met primarily in the fall of 2020 and explored different Late School Start timing options for Trumbull Public Schools. A final presentation of the 2020 Committee was presented to the Board of Education on Tuesday, November 10, 2020. Please click here for a copy of the November 10th presentation.
