  • School Board Continues Review of Start Times

    Last school year, the Westonka School District began looking into the option of delaying school start times as a way to improve our students’ mental health and wellbeing. The American Academy of Pediatrics, among other organizations, recommends that districts delay start times of middle and high schools to combat teen sleep deprivation. At the Sept. 17 Westonka School Board meeting, the board gave preliminary approval to a draft of school start times for the 2019-2020 school year. Please read the Borg Report to learn more about the proposed changes.
