School starts later in the Barnegat School District

This petition had 101 supporters

School starts extremely early, our brains physically don't fully function at 7:32 in the morning. We want change, we would like you to make school start later for the whole district, by one hour. The national sleep foundation has proven, that teenagers tend to fall asleep 11 pm or later. When most students in the Barnegat school district wakeup around 6:30 am that means that they are suffering from sleep deprivation. This is better explain in the following article provided by the national sleep foundation// 

Many other students and myself believe that sleep is crucial to our growth and development and just one hour extra would be a better change. Hopefully there are enough signatures to consider a change. I'll be updating every so often. Thank you!
