St. Paul Schools Weigh Later High School Start

Created: 08/11/2014 8:15 AM KAALtv.com

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The St. Paul Public Schools administrators are taking a serious look at starting high school later in the morning.
 
The school district has weighed nearly a dozen start-time scenarios and narrowed that down to two for further study and input.
 
The St. Paul Pioneer Press says recent research, including a University of Minnesota study, shows a later start improves attendance, grades and test scores for high school students and lowers incidents of depression.
 
Most high schools and middle schools in St. Paul start at 7:30 a.m. Elementary students arrive at 8:30 or 9:30 a.m.
 
Minneapolis and Edina schools were early participants in the later start times.
