The research is compelling: adolescents have a different sleep cycle than the rest of us. This study group explored the connections between mind, body, and schedules for school-age children and developed recommendations about how to better support these connections as a district. The recommendations were accepted by the board in August 2018, and we started with our new schedule a year later in September 2019. Our new start times for elementary schools are 7:50 a.m. - 2:20 p.m. (Plank North and Klem North are 7:40 a.m. - 2:10 p.m.), and 8:45 a.m. - 3:15 p.m. for secondary schools (middle and high schools).
