NORMAL--Elementary students in McLean County will begin their day a little later next year.
The board approved to delay the schools' start time by 15 minutes, Wednesday night.
Currently, elementary students begin the day at 8:30 and end at 3:15.
Now they'll start at 8:45 and end at 3:30.
Unit 5 Superintendent, Gary Niehaus said, "Putting that extra fifteen minutes in does get the buses there on time and therefore kids will get home on time."
High school and middle school start times will stay the same next year.
