Nisky BoE: Prioritize a Public Discussion on Later High School Start Times
The science is clear, students' performance and their mental and physical health would be positively impacted by later school start times.
This petition requests that the Board of Education review the evidence and discuss the issue of later high school start times at an upcoming board meeting. We further petition the board to set a September 2017 deadline for placing this issue on the agenda.
This is an important issue which impacts the health and well being of all of our students. We, the undersigned, believe that the BoE should take a stand publicly, as to whether the issue is worthy of discussion and further BoE action.
