Here we go again. No one is taking into consideration the Children With Special Needs. You are offering daycare at a cost, which we can't afford. You want us to be available to put our children on the bus one hour later for the teachers, but if they are not teaching anything to our special need children, what do they need the extra hour for. I have had one excellent teacher for my grandson at Brook Park and if I had my way he would still be there. I am currently looking for a charter school to transfer him to, because he is not learning anything at Belzer middle school. I went to visit one day and one assistant was playing on the computer putting puzzles together, and the teacher was not at the school, so I couldn't talk to her.

It's an excellent idea and more schools should do it. It is successful at other schools and helps teachers become better teachers for their students. Nobody is going to get confused. You'll get used to it after 2 or 3 weeks. I do not agree that parents should have to pay if they want their children to come at the regular time. The administration needs to put substitutes and para professionals to work during that hour time slot. They can supervise the students with special needs or any other student that arrives early while teachers are getting their professional development.

Why not just have the teachers come in one hour early instead of making everyparent and student change their schedule?
