Later Start Times and Grafton Public Schools

  • On September 13, 2016, Superintendent Jay Cummings made an initial report to the School Committee about Later School Start Times and the tremendous amount of research that supports starting school later results in increased alertness, mood, overall health and performance.

    Since that initial presentation, the Grafton School Committee has been exploring later start times for our schools.   A Later Start Times Committee has been formed and below is the working timeline. Please continue to visit this page for updates, meeting schedules and relevant information.
