School Start Times 2016-2017 Survey

School Start Times 2016-2017 Survey

This survey is designed to gather community input around switching start and end times between elementary and secondary schools.  The superintendents of Bermudian Springs, Upper Adams,  Conewago Valley, Fairfield, Gettysburg and Littlestown are seeking as much information and input as possible to make an informed decision in September.  The decision to switch times would not be implemented until the 2017-2018 school year.   This will allow a full year of planning for parents and the community if the input from the community, staff, students and school board is favorable.
