Recent research on adolescent sleep and school start times has come out of the National Sleep Foundation and the University of Minnesota, leading to the recommendation that schools consider delaying their start times to 8:30-9:00. But what's best for some schools may not work for others, and changing a school's start time has broader implications than simply letting students "sleep in."
To offer ISM's perspective on this research, Dr. Smyth will offer an overview of the research's results and implications while highlighting the critical issues as they apply to private-independent schools, including its impact on students.
We'll cover these topics and more:
- Co-curricular activities
- The school day
- Student performance
Total run time is 60 minutes. The presentation will run approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes designated for Q&A.
Who Should Attend: This Webinar is for all school leaders, particularly Heads of School and Division Heads.
