Later Start Times for High Schoolers

To be delivered to Dorsey Hopson, Superintendent, Shelby County Schools

Petition Statement

There is overwhelming data showing teens need more sleep. When high schools start at 7:00 AM many students are not fully prepared to start their day.
There are currently 970 signatures. NEW goal - We need 1,000 signatures!

Petition Background

My son attends Central High School and getting up at 6:00 is quite difficult. He has trouble going to sleep earlier. Check out this recent New York Times article:
