KCPS changing start times for 2014-15 school year

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Some Kansas City students will have to get up earlier this upcoming school year, while others can sleep in.

The Kansas City School District approved new start times Thursday. The changes are designed to help with reaccreditation and student achievement. Some schools will start as early as 7:20 a.m., while others as late as 9 a.m. For students not excited about waking up earlier, on the bright side, they’ll get out nearly two hours earlier than some of their peers.

A letter outlining specific information about bus stops and pick up times will be mailed to families in early August.
