(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.
The new leader of the Transportation Security Administration said his top priority would be to close security gaps after an internal report showed 96 percent of undercover tests failed.
