Reports of a 30% increase in tardiness at the high school, as compared to the previous year, prompted discussions among community members and board attendees. Parents and community members voiced strong opinions, with one urging for school start times to be pushed to after 8 a.m. for the well-being of students.

The debate extended to the impact of early dismissals on after-school care.
