Howard County, MD: 2014

In the fall of 2013, the Howard County Superintendent requested the formation of a work group to examine research, school bell schedules, and an initial survey of the impact on transportation, student activities/athletics, and family/community needs. From September 2013 to January 2014, the group gathered, reviewed, and analyzed information relevant to the high school start time. Their preliminary report (linked below), presented in February 2014, highlights the need for further study, input, and analysis.
