School Start Times for the  2019-2020 School Year

Cherokee County Board of Education ran the numbers, and will be able to add five more minutes of learning to the school day for elementary school students during the 2019-2020  school year without disrupting bus routes. Beginning in August, the school day will start at 7:35 a.m. for all elementary school students. The schedules for our other schools will remain unchanged. As we continue to raise expectations for learning, while still allowing time for recess, friendship and fun, every minute helps.
