Los Alamos Public Schools (LAPS) and other school districts around the country, are looking closely at adjusting K-12 school start times to better align with data about the amount of time students need to sleep and when. The purpose of the community and school meetings was to engage the public and LAPS stakeholders on whether to adjust the 2018-19 school start times for the LAPS high school, middle school and elementary schools. The meetings also addressed how to optimally set school start times for LAPS students and their families.
