LPS announces possible new start times

Recently Cherry Creek Schools have decided to revamp their start times. This was a long process that involved polling and studying into the science of sleep and time management. The Cherry Creek School board unanimously agreed to change start times.

This decision has interesting implications for the Littleton Public Schools start time change conundrum. The organization has been researching and polling to see if changing start times would benefit performance and success.

Last week, there was a Littleton Public Schools board meeting. The meeting went to 11:30 in the night and the ultimate decision was to separate the motions of changing start times and changing late starts. This has been interpreted as most likely there will be late starts each week next year, but start times will not be changed.
