After four hours of often angry parent testimony, two School Committee members urged the board to “revisit” early start times that are set to take effect next school year, to the applause of parents.
“I think we do have to take this back and reconsider this,” said School Committee member Michael Loconto.
No decision was made on when or if another vote would take place.
Superintendent Tommy Chang said his staff take all of it into consideration.
“The School Committee passed a strong policy. There are challenges with the early start times,” Chang said. “We have a number of meetings this week. I’m meeting with principals about start times. … We’re going to take everything into consideration.”
School committee member Miren Uriarte said she hopes administrators can rework the policy to help parents.
