Bell Times & Scheduling

  • MCR encouraged the Board of Education to pass a resolution that made high school bell times 20 minutes later. While this resolution passed, MCR recognizes that many students do not feel this is enough of a time difference to see large improvements in student well being.

  • Every year, MCR works with the Board of Education to approve the following year’s calendar schedule, accounting for professional days, religious holidays, and the recent mandate to start school after Labor Day.
