Welcome to Start School Later Houston, TX!
Yen Rabe is an educator in the Houston area. She sees first-hand the toll of lack of sleep has on her students. There have been students facing serious health issues who lacked sleep.
Her school district changed to an earlier start time in 2009 following other districts with similar early start time to save money on buses.
Now that the research and awareness about early school start times causing sleep deprivation is more widespread, the Houston chapter is hoping to undo the damage wreaked by the earlier start time in the Houston area school

"My daughter graduated from a high school in a district with a 7:15 start time and saw that she could have benefited from more sleep."
