Oshkosh public schools changing hours to cut costs

Nearly every public school in Oshkosh will have new hours next year as part of an effort to cut down busing costs by having all schools start and end at the same time.

All elementary schools will start at 7:55 a.m. and end at 2:35 p.m. All middle schools will start at 8:19 a.m. and end at 3:37 p.m. Both high schools will start at 8:23 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m.

The Oshkosh school district released the new times Tuesday.

District administrators estimate they will cut transportation costs $250,000 by aligning school hours. Many schools currently start at differing times ranging from 7:35 a.m. to 8:50 a.m.
