Should high school students have a choice of start times?

Should high school students be given a choice of early or later start times? That is the question being considered by the Jackson school board in Michigan.  Bob Wheaton of the Jackson Citizen Patriot  reported that the later start would be optional.

No decision has been made. “We are still in the process of adjusting some schedules and seeking staff that would be interested in this adjusted schedule,” said Ben Pack, assistant superintendent for human resources and secondary curriculum. “It would be up and running … at the earliest in second trimester, which would be the end of November.”

Wheaton noted that the later school hours would begin at 9:01 a.m. and end at 3:40 p.m. The current hours are 7:35 a.m. to 2:27 p.m.
