Next school year, students in Collierville will be able to get a little more sleep before heading to class.
The district voted Thursday night to change the high school’s 7:00 a.m. start time to 30 minutes later. Middle schools will have an extra 15 minutes.
Under the new rules, no child would be picked up by the bus before 6:45 a.m.
The move also means adjusting transportation and adding more buses, at a price-tag of more than $400,000.
The change goes into effect next school year.
