“When student health, safety, and learning is in your hands, you want to have as much information as possible,” noted Phyllis Payne, SSL Implementation Director. “Many schools have adopted healthier school start times, and workshops like these give decision-makers a chance to collaborate with and learn from school leaders who have made the change. We look forward to hosting similar events in other localities with the help of generous sponsors.”
Support for the Pennsylvania workshops was provided by the Association of School Psychologists of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Psychological Association, Decision Support Group, School Bus Consultants, State Farm, and Penn Medicine – Radnor, Powell Family Foundation. Start School Later would like to extend appreciation to the sponsors, the panel members, and to local volunteers Gail Karafin, Kate Doyle, Amy Goldman, Cheryl Hertzog, Cheryl Horsey, and Elizabeth Rambeau.
