Sleep Surveys

After a comprehensive public process the ISD shifted in the fall of 2017 to have a later start time for secondary students. This decision was also based on new research on the sleep cycles of teens showing the benefit of later start times on student health and safety. As part of a national study on the impact of later start times, the ISD agreed to work in conjunction with UW Children's Hospital to survey parents and students at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The first survey was conducted in May and June of 2017, prior to the change. The second survey was conducted in May and June of 2018. As data and reports become available, we will post the results here.
