2021-2022 School Year Changes in School Hours

At the April 16, 2021 School Board Special Session, the School Board approved the School Start Time Change proposal to be implemented in the fall of 2021-22. The recommendation that has been discussed in recent months aligns with the District’s Strategic Plan and research on adolescent sleep.

The White Bear Lake Area School District recently approved a proposal related to school start and dismissal times to be implemented in the fall of 2021-22.

Key factors of the proposal include:

  • The recommendation aligns with the District’s Strategic Plan.
  • The proposed change aligns with research on adolescent sleep.
  • The proposed change is consistent with a commitment the District made to the City of White Bear Lake and current WBLAHS - North Campus neighborhood residents to prioritize the mitigation of traffic impact.
  • The proposed change would allow the District to run a more efficient, three-tiered transportation system.
