NHS Late Start Time On Hold

(Northampton, MA) — The late start time debate for Northampton High School has been rekindled. In June, the school board voted to move the start time from 7:30 a.m. to between 8 and 8:30 starting next fall. That was when busing to the High School had been eliminated in a budget-cutting move, which made things simple. Now that busing has been restored with a proposition two-and-a-half override, system-wide transportation needs have to be considered. Interim Superintendent Regina Nash is proposing the School Committee hire a consultant to evaluate various busing options, noting that each will come with a price tag. The late-start-time debate has been going on for years.
