- research shows that teenagers need more sleep and perform better and learn more when school begins later in the day;
- a later start would give students time to meet with teachers in the mornings before the start of school for tutoring, homework help, etc.;
- a later start may help to reduce student lateness to school especially for those who travel long distances to school; and
- teachers can conduct credit retrieval courses, Regents review, and clubs both before and after school.
We would love for you to share your thoughts on how changing the start time of the school day will impact student learning and achievement. As a student, would you take advantage of early morning tutoring, homework help, Regents review, clubs, and/or credit retrieval. Please post your responses! Thanks for sharing!
