Add Your Voice: Should High School Start Later?

We are a caring group of parents from various MNPS clusters who want to revive the conversation and action around starting Nashville Public High Schools later. We have the earliest high school start times in the nation. Most high schools in Nashville open their doors at 6:45am and start school at 7:05am.

There is a vast amount of research that shows that teenage mental and physical health, grades, sleep quality, learning ability, attendance, and even behavior improve when high schools start later. 

We have created this survey to get a sense of what other parents feel about this issue. We plan on sharing the results of this informal survey with the school board later this spring.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to tell us what you think, and whether you would like to join this initiative.
