thanks for doing this
I’m a School Nurse with San Diego Unified School District and the Adolescent Chair for the California School Nurses Organization. Several years ago there was a working group within the district to change school start times. Unfortunately, like so many things in a large, broken system, nothing changed. It’s time to bring this topic back to the table. Here is a recent article I wrote on this topic and you’ll be pleased to see links to this wonderful web site are included. I’m ready to take this on in San Diego Unified but need support……any volunteers?
