Committee Recommends Keeping Current Wake County School Bell Schedule

Posted February 18, 2004 4:47 a.m. EST

— The Wake County Schools' Program Committee will recommend to the full school board that there be no significant change to the bell schedule for the 2004-05 school year.

The committee met Wednesday to discuss a proposed change that would have high schools start later -- so their students could sleep later in the mornings -- and elementary schools start earlier.

At its next meeting, the Program Committee will decide whether it is necessary to look at a change in the bell schedule in the future.
