(SAVANNAH, Mo.) Traffic and long commutes for school buses can leave some kids waiting outside for long periods.

So should school begin a bit earlier or let out later in an effort to fix potantial saftey risks?

The Savannah R-III District board wants school parents to weigh in on just that decision.

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."

The topic will be further discussed during future work sessions, which are open to the public.
