Committee Membership

The Rethinking School Start Time Committee is composed of 22 members who represent the interests of parents, teachers, students and school administrators. Anne McKernan, Director of Secondary Education, serves as the committee chair. To select committee members, Ms. McKernan contacted the Parent Teacher Council President, Mr. Steven Deane, who worked with the PTO Presidents to recruit members. Six parents serve on the committee representing elementary, middle and high schools. Three parents represent the north end of town, while three represent the south end of town. The West Hartford Education Association (WHEA) President, Mrs. Theresa McKeown, recruited two elementary, two middle school and two high school teachers to serve, and Mrs. McKeown is a member. High School building administrators recruited one student from each high school. Two principals serve on the committee.
