Last, kids need a lot of sleep so they can wake up refreshed and ready to learn. I believe that going to school later will make it where kids can get better grades and get better rest. Many people might disagree,because a lot of people work and they cannot get their kids to school that late. It is hard for people to get their kids to school, but at least you know that your kid hopefully is getting better grades and is not exhausted. Kids need all the rest they can get.
If school started later, teens would be able to get more sleep, therefore increasing both their concentration and academic performance in classes. A later start gives students a longer attention span and a better morning. Obviously these things would really affect how the student performs. In addition, schools with later start times are likely to have higher attendance rates, according to the National Sleep Foundation. In an interview with many WAIS students, many students tend to sleep anyway during school, so they don’t even bother to show up, having to wake up that
Sleeping Schools Countless students all over the US struggle to keep their eyes open throughout the day because school classes start too early in the morning. If we were able to give an hour to students in the morning, we would see an increase in their physical mentality, their academic skill level, and an overall happier lifestyle. Many people will argue that starting school too late in the morning will cause after school activities -- such as sports and other clubs -- no time to meet before the night ends. But I must mention that we don’t need to push the start time that much later to see a huge improvement on student’s test scores, overall grades, and a student’s mood. The current school start time is unacceptable when thought about logically, and we must make the changes to have school start at a later time.
They need to be home to pick up their children and take them to any activities they may have, cook dinner, tidy the house, prepare for work the next day, and to just be a parent. Some teachers even attend things such as workout classes at local Community Centers, book clubs, or other club meetings, etc. Things that would all have to be cancelled or attended at later times due to their need to be at home and the new obligation of working later. The parents of the teenagers staying in school later would also be effected by now having to change their own schedules to fit around those of
"We're going to look back on this time period and wonder why it took so long," said Phyllis Payne of Start School Later. This will help teens excel to their fullest and not be held down with lack of sleep. Many students don’t get the sleep they need to function throughout the day and many kids fall asleep in class says Bridget Shelton, a freshman at Seattle's Roosevelt High School. This is another reason why Park City High School should start at a later time. Last but no least, many students that drive in high school are likely to be out at night driving and if they are tired and sleep deprived, then they are more likely to crash their car from drifting off the road.
It kick starts your metabolism and brain. By waking up an hour later and being more ready for the day when you wake up, it will cause people to get ready faster and not sit in bed for 15 minutes before getting out of bed therefor giving time to make breakfast/eat breakfast. Breakfast can actually help because it provides nutrients and energy to keep you going through the day. It will cause you to not be so tired and groggy in the morning. It basically gives you a boost for the day.
I propose that Carmen should start doing block schedule because this will give the students an opportunity to get more one on one with their teachers for longer class periods and to have less homework each night so that students aren't staying up late. 2)We should have block schedules at Carmen so that students are having more work time in class and less homework at night that causes them to stay up late. Having a block schedule will allow students to have less homework at night this also prevents them from staying up late. My friend who goes to a school that once had no block schedule. She had said they had changed to block schedule and that everything went very well for her after that.
The purpose of this proposal is to convince both the school and parents the benefits of a later school start time. First of all students who get more sleep tend to get better grades, have less depression, anxiety and have more focus and concentration. Students who get more sleep also have better health, impulse control, obedience issues, memory and even better attendance. I propose that school start times be pushed back to at least 8:30 or 9:00 in the morning. The main area I will be focusing on is behavior issues and how it effects student learning.
If a school changes their start time they are potentially setting the students up for failure later in life. Eight o’clock is not an early time to be up and ready to learn. Some businesses start way before that time and close late too. Students need to learn how to balance their life more efficiently and understand that the worl does not revolve around them. Clubs would also notice the effect of later start times due to the fact that countless times they meet after school and if they continued to do so they’d be
The first reason is because of sports needing to practice outdoors have more daylight. Football practice starts after school at 3:30 and ends around 6 or 6:30. So if school started at 9 or 10 then practice would start at 4:30 or 5:30 and would end at 7 or 8 and the sun would be to going down so they wouldn’t have a lot time to eat, shower, do homework, and go to bed after `practice. Especially if they are kids that go to bed early. High school athletics are very important to many students.
