Davenport Schools have released options for school start times. The controversy has been brewing since late April, when the school board passed new start times for the coming school year. Six elementary schools would start after 9:00 am and that worried some parents concerned about child care. Parents got together a petition and the board rescinded the start times in its May 29th meeting.
Now, the school board has released options for parents to review before three public meetings. The meetings start this week:
Wednesday, May 21 in the West High School auditorium, 3505 West Locust Street
Thursday, May 22 in the Central High School auditorium, 1120 Main Street
Thursday, May 29 in the North High School auditorium, 626 West 53rd Street
