On Tuesday, March 1, the Wake Board of Education considered a recommendation to change the bell schedule for Knightdale High. The proposed schedule: 7:25 a.m. to 2:18 p.m.

  • This change aligns the school's bell schedule with other high schools.
  • Under the current schedule, student athletes lose classroom time when they compete against other schools because they have to leave early. 
  • In addition, the revamped programs at Knightdale High require that students take part in opportunities and afterschool activities in the afternoon. The earlier start time will allow more students to participate in those activities.
