A pair of counties in the D.C. suburbs are considering pushing back high school start times, potentially joining a number of districts around the country that have switched to later school days to improve student achievement.
Ms. Evans, who in 2004 co-founded the Start Later for Excellence in Education Proposal (SLEEP) to advocate for a later start in the county, said the board hopes to have a report done by next spring.
"It is beneficial to their physical health, their mental health and their academic health," said Fairfax County School Board member Sandy Evans, whose county is also considering moving back its start time. "This [early schedule] just can't be good for teenagers."
