Brian Romero started this petition to LAUSD and

My Idea for my petition is having school start at 9 o clock in the morning and ending school at 4pm. Schools in other areas are doing it already so LAUSD should do it as well. Kids can have more time to change, eat and be ready for school. They would not complain about having to wake up early or being sleepy in class by having one more hour for school. It could also work for teachers, as from three to four, they aren’t doing anything and it isn’t late at four in the afternoon. 

In my research. I have concluded that some benefits of this change are improved alertness, memory, attention and focusing more especially in first period. It can improve academic performance for many disadvantaged kids. Having school start later can reduce tardiness, truancy and less people having detention. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine(AASM) say that middle and high school should start no later than 8:30 am. Having school start later can mean that it gives students an opportunity to get the amount of sleep they need. 

Having school start later can mean for some better grades and improvements in areas of need. My vision for the future is having LAUSD schools start an hour later. Schools should start at nine in the morning and end at four in the afternoon. This would not remove an hour as eight to three is the same amount of hours as from nine to four. Having school start an hour later can help students improve and come to school on time. Students won’t have tardy slips, they will be better prepared for school and be better suited to do their assignments
