WCSD is currently in the process of changing school start times. With the idea being proposed; some people think this will be too difficult to comprehend due to school ending later. However, studies have shown that teens need more sleep than younger kids. We believe that the school start times should be switched so high school gets moved later and elementary schools moved earlier. Studies show that the highest amount of tardiness is practiced in first period rather than the other class times. Students have a difficulty of waking up in order to be ready for school; along with students that have to walk in the morning. WSCD reports that more than 20 students have been hit by vehicles when walking. Furthermore, students who drive have a greater chance of consuming sleep deprivation. Accidents are more likely to occur; in the state of Nevada the student drivers handbook encourages young adults to not drive when tired. Therefore, the school start times should be pushed back later so teens can get the sleep they need. Another problem that citizens have in mind is sport events happening at a later time; although the statement may be true parents tend to get off work at a later time such a 4/5pm. This allows a chance for parents to attend games that would be earlier but have changed due to school start time. Even studies have shown athletes preform better when having a good nights rest. Finally, a serve shows that students and parents want a change in school start times; while admins and teachers tie out in their choice. The idea that parents want school time to change in the most important; due to wanting to see children throughout the day or wanting to be involved in students academics. By signing this petition, WSCD will more likely to pass the law and benefits will be brought with the concept. Student teens need sleep , and a better mental health in order perform greatly in their academics and everyday lives.
