After a study by the American Medical Association revealed benefits to starting school at later times for teenagers, the Poudre School District began to consider shifting school start times. Taking both student and parent input into consideration, they made a decision that will be effective starting during the 2019-2020 school year.

The school district’s Board of Education voted Tuesday, November 27 in favor of making school start times later, with many claiming they cannot ignore what the research is showing. Fossil Ridge High School will shift to being in session from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., starting with the next school year. The time change will require changes to Fossil’s current class schedule, among others, and more information will be published as it becomes available.

For more information on the board’s initial decision and data gathered on the subject, check out the article from The Coloradoan.
