Changing School Start Times: Impact on Sleep in Primary And Secondary School Students

Year: 2022

This is the first large-scale, longitudinal, and representative study to concurrently examine the impact of changing school start times across students in primary/secondary school. Findings suggest a minimal impact of earlier start times on early school students’ sleep or daytime sleepiness, while further supporting the significant benefits of delaying middle school and high school start times on student sleep and daytime sleepiness.
