The Holliston School Committee is evaluating several options designed to better align the school day for optimal learning, while improving the health and well being of our students. The current status of the School Start Time Subcommittee's findings have been published to the HPS website here. The page includes links to research about sleep time and later start times, as well as data collected about Holliston students' sleep habits. You can also find the presentation "The Science of School Start Times," presented by Dr. C. Landrigran to the school committee on January 19, 2017.

The Subcommittee is considering three scenarios for school start time adjustments for the 2018-2019 school year. These scenarios, along with their cost factors and impacts, are also published.

The Subcommittee is in the final stages of designing an on-line survey for students, staff and parents to seek feedback from these critical constituencies. The surveys are expected to be published after April vacation and will be available through June 1, 2017.
