The Ypsilanti Community Schools Board of Education tonight will consider tweaking the start time for classes at its meeting tonight. The district planned to have each student to spend seven-and-a-half hours in school every day, but it's being proposed to reduce that by fifteen minutes.
Currently, classes at Ypsilanti Community High School are set to begin at 8 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m. Under a proposed change, the high school would let out at 3:15 p.m. instead. Ypsilanti Community Middle School would have the same bell times. Classes in district elementary schools would start at 9:10 a.m. and let out at 4:25 p.m, rather than 4:40 p.m. The school day at Ypsilanti New Tech would run from 7:50 a.m. to 3:05 p.m.
Listen to "Morning Edition" between 5 and 9am Tuesday morning for a wrap-up of the meeting.
