Input 220 Advisory CouncilIn the spring of 2015, The Barrington 220 Board of Education compiled a group of community members, parents and staff to form the Input 220 Advisory Group. The group was charged to study if Barrington 220 should and could optimize the defined time and configuration of an instructional day based on student and organizational needs, understanding the system-wide impact on grades pre-K through 12.The Input 220 charge regarding later middle and high school start times originated with the school district’s strategic plan, which was created by 330 community members in 2008 and 2009. This is the third and most complex part of that plan to create optimal time for learning. Improving the school-year calendar and implementing kindergarten enrichment have already been accomplished.
