School May Start Later for Some Students

Students at the Campbell County High School and Middle School may have an extra hour to get ready in the morning next year. The school day starts at 7:30 am. That's the earliest start time in the area, and some research says it may be too early, so the school district is looking at ways to change it. Superintendent Anthony Strong is looking at options that would push back the 7:30 start time at the district's high school and middle school. Strong says,"My biggest hope is that it's going to impact the learning of our students and that's why we're here, to make sure that they have those opportunities and to do what's best for students." The school district points to research that shows teenagers need at least an hour after they wake up in the morning to be fully functional in the classroom. A later start time also means later dismissal, which affects extracurricular activities and after-school jobs. It may also change the start time at Campbell County elementary schools and re-route busses. Superintendent Strong says he's taking all of those things into consideration. Mr. Strong will share specific proposals with the school board next month. Board members have to vote on it before it the new time takes affect, which is likely to be at the beginning of next school year.
