On May 24, 2016, the Board of Education voted to approve a Memorandum of Agreement with the Elmhurst Teachers' Council. The basis of this proposed agreement will clarify contract language regarding the Student Late Arrival days at all grade levels. The purpose of the change is to enhance the collaborative and educational instructional practice of our teachers in order to have a deeper impact on student learning and growth.

The agreement returns Student Late Arrival days at York High School to a nearly weekly occurrence on Wednesdays (with October 19 being the exception, as it is the national PSAT testing day). The agreement maintains monthly Student Late Arrival days on most Wednesdays at the early childhood, elementary and middle school levels. However, the duration of the collaboration meetings held on Student Late Arrival days will be extended from 70 minutes to 90 minutes at all levels.

Start times for 2016-17 Student Late Arrival days are as follows:

  • Elementary School: Student instruction begins at 9:45 AM
  • Middle School: Student instruction begins at 10:00 AM
  • High School: Student instruction begins at 9:25 AM

Due to the fact that District 205 uses the same bus company to transport students at all three levels – elementary, middle school and high school, there is some extra time built in to the Student Late Arrival days to allow for busing needs. Regular start times will remain the same as they were in 2015-16.

As always, supervised student arrival will begin 15 minutes prior to start time. However, for families who need to maintain the same schedule for Student Late Arrival days this coming school year as last, supervision will be made available at 9:10 AM (which was the elementary Student Late Arrival schedule for 2015-16). Please understand that transportation will not be provided at this earlier time.
