Take the RUSD Start and End Time, Calendar and Transportation Survey Today!


We are celebrating some wonderful successes across Racine Unified this year! We are thrilled at the progress our students are making. We have more work to do and we want you to be part of it.

After hearing from our parents and staff, we have developed some options that include revising our transportation policies, school start and end times and our calendar. We want to provide high-quality learning opportunities for every child. The District believes these options offer several positive benefits for our students, families and staff including:

  • Later start times for middle and high school students
  • Shorter average bus ride time for students
  • Opportunity for more students in grades families to receive busing  (eligibility reduced from 2 miles to 1.5 miles)
  • Consistent start and end times across grade bands (elementary, middle, high)
  • Longer music, art and physical education classes for elementary students
  • More training and planning time for teachers
  • Lengthening the school day slightly, allowing for a shorter school year by 3-4 days (ending first week of June)

Your voice is crucial to this process. We want your feedback on our proposals so that our decisions will reflect the priorities of our families and our staff. Please take just a few minutes to complete a brief survey on these options.
