Save Student's Sleep: YRDSB School Start Times are too Early

This petition had 17 supporters

The school start times are too early for students attending the schools in the YRDSB region. This issue is affecting many groups of people such as parents because the early start times are causing them more hassle in the mornings to get to work and also get their kids to school. It also affects the teachers and staff of the school because it helps them be more alert while they teach, which means their students will receive a better quality of education. In addition, it affects the education policy makers as they are confused in what the common good in this situation is as there are many people supporting both sides of this argument. To solve this issue, we just simply need to help the YRDSB understand the importance of pushing change for this issue as they are the people that have control over this situation. If YRDSB decides to push for the change, than school start times will be pushed back to a later time and academic performance of the schools in the YRDSB region will increase dramatically. But, if YRDSD decides to decline change regarding this issue, school start times will remain the same. This issue really impacts me as after staying up late finishing my school work, waking up early in the morning becomes hard. This causes me to pay less attention during class time which affects my academic performance. In conclusion, it is important to try and help push for change regarding this issue.
