Welcome to Start School Later Minnesota!
Julie Dahl serves on the board on the Minnesota Sleep Society. At their Fall 2015 conference, they were asked to address school start times in Minnesota.
Julie opted to launch a local chapter of Start School Later in
order to connect with the expanding group of people making strides to address the public health crisis involving teen sleep deprivation.
While Edina, MN is the site of the landmark school start time studies published in the 1990's, many neighboring school districts still have high school and middle school start times that are earlier than the American Academy of Pediatrics and CDC recommended start time of 8:30 a.m.
Minnesota is the sixth statewide chapter and the 25th state to be represented by Start School Later.
