What Time Should School Start? Give Your Input on Feb. 12

GOLDEN, Colo. (Jan. 10, 2018) – Jeffco Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Jason Glass is hosting a meeting regarding school start times. Recent research and news stories have brought up the issue of teenage sleep patterns and how they sometimes conflict with school schedules.

Should Jeffco Public Schools start the school day later? What are the implications of changing school start times? Come to this community meeting to learn more and express your thoughts on school start times:

5:30-7:00 p.m.
Monday, Feb. 12
Jeffco Education Center
5th Floor Boardroom
1829 Denver West Dr. #17
Golden, CO 80401

“Changing start times is complex and involves considerations around athletics, activities, working students, transportation, and more,” explained Dr. Glass.

The meeting will include information on current school start times, possible impacts if times are changed, and an opportunity give input and express concerns. A task force to examine school start time options will be formed after the initial meeting. If the task force ultimately recommends a change in school start times, the change would be implemented for the 2019-20 school year at the earliest. For more information call 303-982-6800.
