UPDATE ON ANCHORAGE SCHOOL DISTRICT'S

LOOK AT SCHOOL START TIMES

* High School student Matthew Park started a petition to ASD in July 2017 to push high school start times to 8:30. https://www.change.org/p/anchorage-school-district-push-start-times-in-asd-high-schools-to-8-30-am

* In August of 2017 the Superintendent (Dr. Deena Bishop) and the Board President (Tam Agosti-Gisler) indicated that they wanted to look at changing school start times.  https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/education/2017/08/09/should-the-anchorage-school-district-change-its-school-start-times/

* By November the Superintendent had used her discretionary budget to hire Western Demographics to look at the issue in what some have called an "efficiency study".  http://www.ktva.com/story/36909860/local-teens-welcome-new-school-start-times

* Since then the Superintendent has published a web page on school start times on the ASD website.  https://www.asdk12.org/Page/10284 

* A bibliography was provided to ASD. https://www.zotero.org/groups/2153649/school_start_times
