Allows for More Sleep
"Adolescents need more sleep, need to wake up later. Studies have shown that adolescents biological clock gets reset to later bed times and wake up time naturally. A later start time would allow students to get more sleep, allowing them to be better prepared to learn."
"Good sleep = better information retention. If the kids are able to get a good night's sleep, they will be better prepared to learn because being awake is kind of important to the learning process!"
More Time in Mornings
"Calm mornings - More time to get ready and eat a good breakfast. Not be so rushed"
Transportation / Drop-Off
"Changing start times for high school would make pick up much easier. My daughter attends a school with an elementary and high school shared lot. It can take over half an hour to get out of the parking lot."
Homework, Extracurricular, and Family Time
"Later time for after school sports - Sometimes it is hard to make a softball or volleyball game because they start right after school. Ending school later may give parents the chance to make their childs sporting event."
