Purpose and Scope

The purpose of the Later Start Committee is to investigate the impact of start times on the well being of students and to study the feasibility of changing start times for higher grade students at NUSD.  This investigation aligns with the most modern research on the impact of school start times on the brain and behavioral physiology of students as well as their capacity to get the most out of their learning environment.  For more information about the latest in later start research or the latest findings and proposals of the committee, scroll down to access public documents and read more about the planned initiatives.
