The start times at a number of schools in the district may change effective September 2015. These changes are commonly referred to as “Bell time’changes and are the result of a review of transportation services. Over the past year,the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority (OSTA) has conducted a system-wide review of bell times to improve alignment so that school bus service can be better managed. Changes will be discussed at OCDSB School Board’s Committee of the Whole on January 6th and on January 20th,Committee of the Whole will make a final recommendation on the changes. The staff report will be available next week,in the interim,there is a report on the OSTA website. Please note:the proposed change to the CW start time is a start from 9:15am to 9:30am and a finish time of 3:30pm from 3:15pm.
