Start and Dismissal Time Resources

The conversation about starting high schools later has been occurring across the country for several years. As the AACPS Task Force discussed this topic within our own county, we looked to research and expertise both in and out of Maryland. Since February 2014, the Task Force has been collecting this research to develop an online library of resources related to school start times and student sleep. This information is provided here, organized by topic, so that all stakeholders can have direct access to the resources that the Task Force considered when developing its recommendations.
