School Start Time Study

The Green Bay Area Public School District Board of Education (Board) and Administration have been approached by various constituents and students regarding the emerging research on school start times aligning to the biological clocks of students as they traverse from early childhood to adolescent to late teens. 

The Board and Administration are interested in studying the issue via the latest research, current status, subsidiary issues, and the thoughts and opinions of constituents, students, teachers, support staff, and administration. While the Board and Administration have limited funding, all start time options will be looked at and brought forward with an estimated cost to any changes recommended. 

The Board and Administration would use the study to make informed decisions on the school start times of the District’s schools for the 2021-22 school year. 

The Cooperative Educational Service Agency #7 (CESA 7) will conduct the study on behalf of the Board and Administration and will serve as a neutral third party that would conduct all facets with neutrality. 

The findings will be presented to the Board and Administration as well as all of the information garnered during the process, will be available on this web page.
