New Bell Times At Many Schools In Simcoe County This September
Several schools in Simcoe County will have new start and end times for the 2017/2018 school year, and the Simcoe County District School Board is doing it to help save money.
The SCDSB’s current transportation budget is $18 million, but are sitting in a $700,000 deficit. These changes to drop off/pick up times will help mitigate those issues by $400,000 approximately, according to a the communications office at the SCDSB.
Many schools will start between 10 and 30 minutes later, but still holding the same length of the day. Right now only elementary schools are affected by the time changes, but next year the board will be review more schools alongside the Catholic School Board. More details are available on the SCDSB’s website here.
