This proposal is ridiculous. The high school start time is already too early. My child leaves the house at 6:45 to get to school on time. If the 7:15 start time is instituted, she will need to leave the house at 6:20. Is the administration not aware of the multitude of studies regarding the importance of sleep and the benefits of later start times for students? How can the administration believe that this is a good proposal based on sound scientific evidence?

This will only impede the main function of schooling: education. Countless studies have shown that later start times improve student health and learning. Instead of solely focusing on fulfilling the public transportation mandate, Stillwater Area High School should attempt to maximize a students education by considering the negative impacts associated with earlier start times.

7:40 is even too early for high schoolers--research shows later start times are healthier & more conduciveto learning. 7:15 a.m. start time would be even more detrimental to their learning and their health

Don't make a school earlier. If anything make it later. Sleep is required for health, especially for youth. Don't be surprised when people start coming later, let alone come at all.
