West Ranch has a Late Start Wednesday schedule.  This schedule allows for teachers to have scheduled time to collaborate and work on professional development together every week.  This schedule aligns with many of the other high schools in the Hart District that also have Late Start Wednesdays.  On Late Start Wednesdays, school will begin at 9:25am with no 1st period, and end at the same time, 2:45pm.  I have attached a copy of the schedule to this email.
