Lake Stevens: Comment on late start
The Lake Stevens School District has started an online survey to gather parent and public opinion about delaying the start of school on Wednesdays.
School districts across the state provide training, planning and collaboration time using different methods, such as delayed starts, early releases and training days that are nonschool days for students.
Last year, Lake Stevens approved a one-hour delayed start on most Wednesdays during the school year.
To comment, go to www.lkstevens.wednet.edu.
Paper copies of the survey are available at Lake Stevens schools.
