CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Starting Monday students in the Cedar Rapids Community School District will start earlier and end later. This is to add instructional time to make up for the time lost due to weather cancellations and delays.

Classes will begin 10 minutes earlier and end 10 minutes later. All district schools, including preschool and alternative kindergarten programs, will follow the adjusted schedule.

This is the first year the district has counted the school year in hours. Previously, the district counted the school year by days.
