STATEMENT OF THE NORTHAMPTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS

The Northampton Public Schools announced that Superintendent Brian L. Salzer will be hosting a Late Start Public Forum from 7:00pm – 8:30pm at the NHS Library, 380 Elm Street Northampton, MA 01060 on Thursday April 5th.  The public is invited to attend.  The Superintendent plans to present two possibilities for a late high school start time. He will share these ideas and ask community members to assist in preparing a third option. These ideas will be developed throughout the spring and summer to be presented to School Committee for review in September 2012.

Thank you for planning the April 5 forum – this sounds like a useful approach to the issue. The NHS PTO will help inform families about the forum via our listserve.

How can a bus plan be presented when we don’t even know how many students actually ride the buses everyday? Do you know that our bus drivers can take attendance, but they have not been asked to do so. Let’s come up with a plan that will actually save money so that we do not have to keep on cutting programs and teachers, but actually add new programs and teachers.
