A reminder to all parents and students: the Page Unified School District will be doing away with its usual late start Wednesday schedule this upcoming school year. Instead, the district will experiment with an early release time on Fridays.

While Page schools will be changing, Tse’ Yaato’ High School, which is part of the Coconino County Accommodation School District, will retain the late start on Wednesdays with normal release all days.

Page schools to end late start on Wednesdays

Page schools to end late start on Wednesdays

The Page Unified School District will be doing away with its usual late start Wednesday schedule next school year. Instead, the district will experiment with an early release time on Fridays.
The change comes after the PUSD governing board approved a formal request from a group of teachers and staff. Many of the teachers pushed for the move because they believe it will help improve attendance among students. The idea, they said, is students and families often like to leave for vacations or trips on Fridays. Giving them an earlier window could incentivize parents to keep students in class all day, rather than taking the whole Friday off.

The Page High School Cultural Arts Building could be up and running again by the end of the summer, Page Unified School District superintendent Rob Varner told the Chronicle on Friday.

His statement comes in response to recent rumors speculating that the CAB would be shut down permanently after it sustained extensive structural damage from last weekend’s rainstorms.

“We just want parents and everyone to know that the CAB isn’t going away,” Varner said. “There are some structural issues we’ve needed to address for awhile that came to a head this week, and we’re working on them now.”

(Page Unified School) District considering bond issue

Despite the passing of Prop. 123 last year, Arizona public schools — especially K – 12 — continue to struggle in the wake of further legislative budget cuts to their capital funds. These funds are typically used to pay for large-scale infrastructure repairs, school buses and technology upgrades. Many districts are turning to bond and override proposals to pay for desperately needed infrastructure upgrades, and the Page Unified School District has its own bond proposition in the works that could be on Page area voters’ ballot sheets this upcoming November.
