Change Mukwonago Highschool Start Time so Students Get More Sleep

This petition had 158 supporters

I would like to change the start time in the morning so it isn't as early as 7:30. Students often have to get up early to catch a bus and get to school earlier than necessary. A lot of students stay up late for many reasons such as working a job, doing homework and having sports. If school started later, students would have more time to sleep, get ready and go to school feeling refreshed and prepared to start the day.

  • "The American Academy of Pediatrics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and American Medical Association all recommend that middle and high schools start class no earlier than 8:30 a.m. to allow students to get healthy sleep." 
  • "The CDC's Youth Risk Behavior Survey in 2011 showed that 69% of U.S. high school students get fewer than 8 hours of sleep on school nights, and 40% get 6 or fewer hours."
  • "Insufficient sleep in teens is associated with obesity, migraines, and immune system disruption and with health risk behaviors including smoking, drinking, stimulant abuse, physical fighting, physical inactivity, depression, and suicidal tendencies"
