Webcast: School Start Times and Student Performance

Oct 31, 2019 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Our students face many issues today, but who would have imagined sleep deprivation could be a significant issue? The Joint State Government Commission established an advisory committee to study the issues, benefits and options related to school districts instituting later start times in secondary schools.

Research organizations like the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Association, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recommended middle and high schools aim for start times that allow students to receive the appropriate amounts of sleep. The US Department of Health’s Office of Disease Prevention and Health has made sufficient sleep for high school students an objective of their Healthy People 2020 Program, and now the Joint State Government Commission has weighed in with their report.

Hear from the executive director of the Commission, Glenn Pasewicz, commission staff and David Hutchinson, PSBA’s appointee to the commission, on the results of their study and work. Take away valuable information that could help your school district in considering this issue and the affect it has on your students. Learn the impacts, both positive and negative, of adjusting start times in schools.
