Welcome to Start School Later Chester County, PA!
Chester County is Start School Later's second local chapter in Pennsylvania, launched by Jeff Hellrung, a member of the Unionville-Chadds Ford School Board.
Jeff has been serving as the school board representative to the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) board which represents all Chester County School Districts.
The CCIU Board sponsored a study by the Chester County Youth Forum, supported by industry experts, to study this issue over the 2015-16 school year. They confirmed the health benefits of starting times of 8:30 or later and found solutions to busing, after school activities, and child care concerns. Now Jeff’s UCF School district has launched a project aiming to find a feasible implementation path for 2017-18. Stay tuned!
Chester County is also home to a student chapter, led by Unionville High School student Matthew Daniels.
