Greater Egg Harbor School District to Push School Day Back 20 Minutes Next Year

The early bird may get the worm but administrators at three South Jersey high schools think a good school day should start a little later in the day.

Beginning at the start of the 2017-2018 school year, the school day will begin 20 minutes later for the high schools in the Greater Egg Harbor Regional School District; Absegami, Oakcrest, and Cedar Creek.

According to Shore News Today, homeroom next year will begin at 7:45am at the schools, instead of the present 7:20 AM start time. Dismissal will remain at 2:30pm.

In a letter to students and parents last week, Greater Egg Harbor School District Superintendent John Keenan announced that classes next year will be 58 minutes instead of 45 minutes. The school district will be implementing a four-day rotating schedule that allows the schools to continue to run eight periods, but only six classes will meet per day on a four-day rotation.
