A reporter asked for examples of school start time policies, after California became the first state to mandate that schools start after a certain time. Our response includes examples of enacted legislation in other states that are exploring the issue, as well as introduced (but now failed) legislation in others. The response also includes links to research on later school start times. To provide timely assistance to our constituents, State Information Requests are typically completed in 48 hours. They reflect an issue scan versus a comprehensive analysis.
