School Start Time Survey

Research exists that suggest high school students are not getting enough sleep based on their inherent biological clock (circadian rhythm).  Click on the link below to read more on the topic.  Find out what the experts say about Healthy School Start Times for Teens

The School Site Governance Team is considering taking a vote on whether to change the school starting time for next year ranging from an 8:00 to 8:30 am start.  As most know, our school has been starting at 7:24 am.  Please know there are pros and cons to keeping the start time the same or changing to a later start time.  While the SSGT does not know if the district’s transportation department can accommodate a school time change, they desire to find out whether school stakeholders are in favor or not for a change in starting time.   A stakeholder meeting to discuss the proposed change is scheduled for Wednesday, December 13th at 6 pm in the Media Center. All are encouraged to attend.    

Please share your feedback by taking the School Start Time Survey.  The deadline to respond to the survey is January 5, 2018.
