Start School Later is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit involved at local, state, and national levels to raise awareness about and advocate for safe and healthy school start times. We have 60 local chapters in 21 states working for developmentally appropriate school start times in their communities. We're continuing to grow as more people discover that joining forces is the most likely way to get local districts to set and ensure healthy hours!
We also have coalition partners who may have initiatives and goals that are outside the scope of Start School Later, but are complementary. Our partners are listed here.
Chapters of Start School Later are working to promote awareness and implement positive change at local and state levels while supporting Start School Later's national initiatives.
