        *LMS and Childs students will ride separate buses.

I have children at different buildings that will now be on different tiers. It would be more convenient for my kids to ride the same bus and start/end the day together.

While we completely understand the desire of families to have their children riding the same bus and/or starting at the same time, we have a significant shortage of bus drivers. We need to change our start times for our schools so that we can safely and efficiently transport our district children to and from school. 

High School start times are too early. Research shows that older children need to start later, not earlier. 

We are aware of the research showing later start times are optimal for teens and older students. However, for our families who rely on the older students to provide after-school care, we need to have our older students released earlier so they’re home to be caregivers of their younger siblings. Also, for every minute that we push back the start of school in the morning we have to add to the end of the school day for elementary students, which will push their return home later in the  evening.

The three elementary schools should be on the same tier with Model students on a separate tier. 

In order to reduce the number of buses needed for each tier to a number that can be met by our transportation department, we need to move one of the elementary schools to a separate tier. We considered each building and found that the one that allowed for the most efficiency was Childs Elementary. This is because Childs would already have a staggered start time from any of the other schools. 

Model students need to be included on the third tier because there are limits to the number of preschool students who can ride a bus without additional adult assistance being required. By including them on a bus with elementary students, we are able to transport those students without adding additional adult support to those buses. The staffing shortage would be made worse, not better by moving Model to a separate tier. 

Families with students on different tiers will either need to return to campus multiple times or wait around to pick up/drop off their students.

We understand that there are challenges for families who have students on separate tiers. We are working to identify before and after school opportunities that will help families with this issue. 

There will be too big of a break between the end of the day and the start of athletic/extracurricular activities. What are students supposed to do?  Will they be supervised? 

We are working to identify before and after school opportunities that will help with this issue. In some cases, students that participate in athletics have been getting out of school during their 5th and 6th hours. This plan will eliminate or minimize the loss of education hours while still completing the athletic event.

How are working parents supposed to get to work on time with the later start times?

We understand the challenge the new start times may have for families. We are providing advance notice of the change to three tier with the new school times so that families have time to make arrangements for childcare and transportation before the start of school.

PDF DocumentWSA Statement in Support of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Communities

 

Washtenaw Superintendents’ Association Statement in Support of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Communities 

 

Washtenaw County, Mich. - With the rise of attacks on Asian Americans and after the murder of eight people in Atlanta, including six Asian American women, by a white male shooter, the Washtenaw Superintendents’ Association is issuing the following statement condemning these acts of racism and standing in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities both locally and nationally. WSA represents the superintendents of the Washtenaw Intermediate School District and the nine public school districts in Washtenaw County: Ann Arbor Public Schools, Chelsea School District, Dexter Community Schools, Lincoln Consolidated Schools, Manchester Community Schools, Milan Area Schools, Saline Area Schools, Whitmore Lake Public Schools and Ypsilanti Community Schools. Their statement reads: 

 

As leaders of the nine traditional school districts and the Washtenaw ISD, we stand together to offer our support and solidarity to the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities and call for the end of terrorizing communities of color in our country. As long as racism plagues our schools and our country, we will not be silent. 

 

As educators, we believe it is our responsibility to shine a light on the anti-Asian violence perpetuated and sustained by policies, practices and beliefs throughout history in our country: The Chinese Exclusion Act, U.S. occupation of the Philippines, Japanese internment camps, and more. Although our history is stained by racist violence, our future does not have to be. 

 

It deeply concerns us that our students may not feel safe, loved or valued in our community simply because of the color of their skin. We want our students to know, and especially our Asian students, that we see you. We value you. You are important to us, and everything you are and will become makes our community richer. 

 

As superintendents of the public schools in Washtenaw County, we will not waver. We stand firm today with the same commitment we made last year: We commit to anti-racist leadership and fostering inclusive educational environments where each person, students and staff, feels a sense of belonging and is treated with dignity and respect. 

 

We want to be clear that racism and hate have no home in our schools or in our communities. Our diversity is what makes us stronger, and we call on our community to stand with us as we foster a future that honors and embraces all of our diverse perspectives and experiences.
