Dr. Mark Hoffman, Bucks IU Executive Director, was recently named to the Pennsylvania Joint State Government Commission’s Advisory Committee on Secondary School Start Times. This committee was created/authorized by 2017 Senate Resolution No. 417 to study the impact of school start times at the secondary level. Dr. Hoffman holds the distinction of being the only Executive Director, and one of only a few Superintendents, to be on the committee.
This is a topic that our own Bucks County Superintendents have studied together for some time. Dr. Hoffman stated, “I hope my seat at the table allows us, as a county, to collectively learn more about what is happening statewide with start times. I will provide updates to, and seek input from, the Superintendents throughout my participation on the committee.”
The committee’s first meeting will be February of 2019.
