School Start Time Parent Survey

Dear Parents,

The Warrick County School Corporation is asking for your input about starting the school day thirty minutes later and ending the school day thirty minutes later (the schools will not have a decrease in their instructional minutes). Research has shown that adolescents require 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep a day and this research asks for schools to look at delaying their start times. The belief is that delaying the start of the school day will help students academically and physically. The corporation is asking for your feedback on this issue. Please take a few minutes of your valuable time to give us your input on this issue. There is an open comments section at the end of the survey to let us know about any specific issues you may have with this proposal. Please click here for the survey.  The survey will close at midnight on May 6th, 2016.
