To let teens sleep, Wayzata considers flipping school start times


Parents might scoff at groggy high schoolers, but Wayzata school district officials are taking a serious look at the issue.

The district is considering shifting more elementary schoolers into early wake-up times to ease the problem of ­sleep-deprived teens.

High schoolers arrive at Wayzata High School by 7:30 a.m. Superintendent Chace Anderson thinks flipping elementary and high school start times — starting younger kids earlier and teens later — will help manage growth, maximize biological sleep times and optimize learning.
