Start School Later Howard County!
Our Goal: Safe and healthy school start times for all Howard County Public Schools.
The Orange Ribbon Bill for Healthy School Hours (House Bill 39) was signed into law by Governor Hogan on April 26, 2016! This legislation is the first of its type across the U.S. supporting school districts implementing change. Here is our press release.
On April 28th, the Board of Education voted to implement later school hours in the 2017-2018 school year!!! Many, many details still need to be determined and the effort will not be over until the bell rings on healthier and safer school hours.
