Dallas ISD officials are considering changing elementary school start times and are asking for feedback from parents.
The district said the current elementary start time is 7:45 a.m., meaning students who ride the bus are often out at a bus stop as early as 6:15 a.m.
That early time has sparked some concerns of young children being outside that early, sometimes in the dark.
A survey, launched by the district asks parents and faculty to choose between two proposed bell schedules.
- 8:00 a.m. - 3:15 p.m.
- 8:20 a.m. - 3:35 p.m.
Responses from the survey will help district leaders decide how to move forward during next school year.
