DMPS Claims Few Complaints Made about New School Start Times, Parents Disagree
DES MOINES, Iowa -- It's been a week now since Des Moines Public School students have been back in classroom. This year, they start their school day earlier than ever before. Parents say they don't like the changes but the district claims they haven't heard many complaints. "It's been a little rough on the kiddo waking up earlier than we did before," says Anna Ryan whose son is a first grader in the district.
