SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Springfield Public Schools has released new start and end times for the 2021-2022 school year and an expansion of before-and-after school support services for students.

New start times will enable the district to expand transportation options for 3,000 more high school students and provide busing service to choice magnet programs for the first time in SPS history. This effort helps reduce barriers by providing a safe, reliable ride to school for many students who have never before received this service.  

Finalized school times closely align with projections that were shared with families in June, with only a few variations required for new bus routes. Specific updates reflected in the final schedule include moving the Wonder Years early childhood education program at Fulbright, Shady Dell and Campbell Early Childhood Centers to Tier 1, movement of the Academy of Fine and Performing Arts to Tier 1 and movement of WOLF to Tier 2.

Tier 1 schools will begin at 7:30 a.m. and end at 2:30 p.m.

Tier 2 schools will begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m.

Tier 3 schools will begin at 9:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m.

Study Alternative Center will begin at 8:15 a.m. and end at 1:45 p.m.
