Here's a look at today's local headlines:
REDUCING CLASS SIZE: DPS already ties class size to a school's percentage of kids on free and reduced meals. Now the school district is fine-tuning the plan to give poorer community schools even more attention. Read Virginia Bridges story for the details.
BOARD KEEPS START TIMES: Experts say high school kids need more sleep, so it made sense to start the school day for them later. But one bus fleet does not fit all. Virginia also reports today how DPS has tabled, for now, a plan to change start times.
CITY WEIGHS NEGLECT CASE: The city is building its case against Greenfire Development, which increasingly looks like it may have taken on more properties than it could manage. Read Jim Wise's report on a hearing next week to determine if the real estate firm is negligent in the recent roof collapse at Liberty Warehouse.
We have a rundown on local high school graduations, Frank Hyman says vote for higher taxes in today's My View (not sure everyone will agree with that; tell us what you think at email@example.com) and modern dance masters Pilobolus (that's them at right, of course) is coming to the 78th annual American Dance Festival, opening tomorrow at DPAC.
