Chalk Talk: Later Start Times Becoming More Popular
Recent research regarding the optimal start times for school has led some districts to alter their schedules. Especially at the high school level, a later start to the day offers a number of benefits. Attendance improves dramatically with a later start time, particularly for classes that meet in the morning. With improved attendance also comes improved class grades and better scores on standardized tests because students are more often in class to learn. These academic gains are seen in all kinds of subjects, including science and math. Additionally, a late start means students can get the rest they need in order to stay alert in school. Teens’ sleep patterns naturally gravitate to staying up later and getting up later, so with a later start time, students have less of a need for coffee, energy drinks, and other caffeinated beverages to stay awake. Research also shows that a late start for high school classes is associated with fewer traffic accidents as well.
