On December 7, 2000 the Arlington School Board approved a new start times schedule for the schools. The new schedule became effective in September 2001.
In 1999, the Advisory Council on Instruction (ACI) reported that it would like to see the school system consider altering high school start times. The Council issued its report(PDF) and the Superintendent's Staff responded to that report with recommendations on how to move forward. A citizen and staff Start Time Steering Committee was established.
