As you may have heard the start and end time of school (bell time) is changing for the fall of 2016-17. For 2016-17 there are three start times: Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3. For Mercer, we are scheduled to be a Tier 2 school. Yet, Seattle Public Schools is providing an opportunity for school communities to collect input from their stakeholders for further consideration. For Mercer we are collecting information about community preferences as a Tier 1 school or a Tier 2 school.
