Benefits of later start times for teens

On April 14, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine released a position statement that  delaying middle school, high school start times is beneficial to students

“Data show that later start times provide adolescents the opportunity to get sufficient sleep on school nights, which optimizes daytime alertness, reduces tardiness and improves school attendance. A later school start time supports peak academic performance, more opportunities for learning, better mental health, and enhanced driving safety.”
