The Hamilton City School District is changing the school hours for next school year to add 20 more minutes of instructional time per day for the elementary schools.   Secondary schools will begin at a later time as research shows that middle and high school students function better with a later start time.

These new times will also eliminate double bus routes to and from school so that students can get to school on time and have less waiting after school.

There will be no more Early Release Days as there will be more Professional Development time for staff during their regular daily work schedule.
