(2 Weeks of School)
Kids don’t always show up
Have to pay a teacher to stay
Have to pay for a bus
Parent will be aware
It is very expensive for tax payers
Hopefully their actions will change
Students will miss class assignments
Students will come to school on time
Students will be more rest and prepared to learn
We need to change the elementary school time for bus students.
Parents and students will be informed for their tardiness.
It costs tax payers money to do home visits.
School will make money.
Parents might not have the money to pay the fine.
Parents will be aware of their child being late to school
Parents might not be home.
They might not have an answering machine
Phone numbers might not be accurate
If kids miss their bus, they can take a late bus to school.
Costs the district money.
The school should start a half an hour later at 8:30am and end half an hour later at 3:05pm
We took a survey, and kids would like to begin school at 8:30am and end school at 3:05pm.
Some students even come as late as 9:00am and miss their entire first period class.
