This video featuring superintendent Jeff Eakins, explains why the Hillsborough County Public School District is planning to implement a new bell schedule for 2018-2019 school year that will greatly improve bus efficiency and enable students to be in class on time and secure instructional time. This was originally proposed for the 2017-2018 school year but was moved to 2018-2019 to give families time to adjust.

In addition to getting students to class on time, the improved efficiency will redirect $2.5 million from transportation back into the classroom to support instruction for students.
