    In addition to its gleaming new buildings and vast athletic facilities, the new Indian Land High School probably will have something else radically different from the status quo – a much later start time.
    The proposed schedule change was to be discussed at Saturday’s school board planning meeting. It would push back the start time at the new high school by 35 minutes to 9:05 a.m., a result of bus-transportation issues caused by separating the high school from the middle school.
