Petition to LPS District Board
Please sign this petition to help have the school start time changed to a later time. Students need more sleep and with the current school schedules more than 8 hours of sleep is extremely difficult. Also a lot of school work is unable to be managed by sleep deprived stressed students. We need this! Thanks!
Petition to West Lincoln High School
Hundreds of schools around the United States have restored later school times, and the overall school environment has been measurably improved when these changes took place. Students who are tired and sleep deprived cannot learn at their best. It impacts memory, attention, and learning just as much as it impairs the students overall well-being. Great academic improvements have been shown in studies done in 44 states that have made this change already. Hundreds of school communities have found ways to make this happen by prioritizing health and learning, and with this improvement in the classroom environment, students can be more alert, less moody, and less likely to fall asleep in class. This change needs to happen. Early school hours are out-of-sync with the sleep needs and patterns of students and PREVENT many from getting the 9 or so hours of sleep that most teenagers and young adults need. The health and equity benefits to pushing back the start time of school to a later time is irrefutable.
