Welcome to Start School Later Houston, TX!
Yen Rabe is a high school teacher at Pasadena HS. She sees first-hand the toll of lack of sleep has on her students. There have been students facing serious health issues and there have been two student fatalities in 2015 involving students that lacked sleep.
Ironically, Pasadena High School changed to an earlier start time in 2007 because a neighboring school had a 7:15am start time. 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.

"My daughter graduated this year from a high school in the district and saw that she could have benefited from more sleep."
