The district released a survey for parents, gaurdians, teachers, and staff to get their opinions on adjusted start and release times.
Superintendint, Eric Kurre , spoke with KQ2, and says, " The school board wants to maintain complete transparency through out the decision making process, which is why the survey was relased."
