School boards debate changing start times to save money

There's an ongoing debate in the capital on whether to change the start time of the school day and it's expected to continue to rage for the next few months.

A handful of parents attended a public consultation last night to learn more from Ottawa's public and Catholic school boards about their plans to change start times.

It's all part of a bid to save money on school bus transportation.

The Ottawa Student Transportation Authority says having buses service several schools per area could save more than 3 million dollars a year.
