Bell times today in Hillsborough



With new bell times coming before the Hillsborough County School Board in a week, the administration is due to release the schedule on the board's agenda.

But this won't be a quiet release of information.

Superintendent Jeff Eakins has scheduled an 11:30 a.m. news conference -- in time for the noon television broadcasts -- to release and discuss next year's school hours.

The idea is to make sure everyone knows and has 10 full months to plan for the changes.

An online survey, offering a variety of options, got more than 50,000 reponses, district officials said.

The changes will take effect for the 2018-19 full year. We will publish the new schedule when we receive it.
