    School start time data presentation for 5 10 2011 school board meeting School start time data presentation for 5 10 2011 school board meeting Presentation Transcript

    • Prepared by Toni Zawisa
      May 2011
      Late Start Justified for Philipsburg-Osceola Area High School
      Data Sources for this Presentation were the:
      PA Department of Education
      Philipsburg – Osceola Area School District
      and the PennDOT CDART Database
    • 2001 – 2010 PennDOT Data for Crashes by 16 & 17 Yr. Old Drivers
      On State Routes by Geographic Areas of West Branch Area, Harmony Area, MoValley and P-O Area School Districts
      Teen Crashes and Early Start Time Summary
      • Virginia Study – 40% higher crash rate with earlier start time
      • Kentucky – 16% crash rate reduction when school started later
      • Locally – 6-8% crash rate difference in the AM (Skewed by MoValley Student Driver Policy)
    • Grade 11 Math Scores Related to HS Start Times
      Academic Impact Summary
      • If we start at ~ 7:30 we are unlikely to achieve much greater than 55 – 60 % Proficient & Advanced on 11 Grade Math PSSA – i.e. no better than where we are today.
      • We can not succeed in becoming one of the best if we start early.
      • Brand Value Decreases
    • Grade 11 Reading Scores Related to HS Start Times
      Academic Impact Summary
      • If we start at ~ 7:30 we are likely to decrease our Advanced & Proficient 11 Grade Reading PSSA Scores from the current 73% to ~ 62%
      • Impact on % of those scoring Advanced could drop from 38% to 20%
      • Greatest Impact is on our Combined Academic & Athletic Best
      • Brand Value Decreases
    • Athletics Predicted to Return Later than 10PM School Nights
      These 110 Varsity Athletes will be Negatively Affected by Earlier Start Time
    • Some buses start routes earlier than needed adding to student “down time”
      One route starts later than needed creating possible VoTech Bus Lateness
      Some Buses are under utilized
      Double Elementary School Unloads increases student “down time” at elementary schools
      At least one route is excessively long resulting in a very early start, a long ride – route should be split
      Current Bus Route Inefficiencies
    • Eliminate “down time” between when all students arrive and start of classes
      Eliminate Homeroom
      Replace current breakfast with a “Grab & Go” breakfast
      Implement an “Opt Out” Bus Program to Reduce Bus Stops/Bus Time
      Carefully Review and Scrutinize Bus Routing Efficiencies and Perform Periodic Refresher Checks
      Implement Phys Ed Credit for Varsity Sports for District Phys Ed Requirements that Exceed State Requirement – Schedule Last Period of the Day
      Alternative Solutions
    • Elementary School Start Time
    • JH School Start Time
    • HS School Start Time
    • Decreased Downtime/Increase Instruction Time
      Transportation Schedule Efficiency
      Revamp Professional Development Schedule
      Decrease Lost Class Time by Athletes
      Reduce the Amount Spent on Substitutes
      Minimize Ride Time
      Separate Secondary and Elementary Routes
      Reality versus Perception – Real Need? Supported by Real Problems? Supported by Real Numbers?
      District Proposal Needs Met By Alternative Proposal

    • Consequences of Sleep Deprived Teens
      15 - 20 % increase in car accidents involving teens when they start school earlier;
      increased absenteeism and tardiness;
      increased abuse of substances, drugs, alcohol
      increased depression and emotional difficulties;
      increased behavioral problems;
      decreased academic performance;
      decreased athletic performance and difficulty in muscle recovery - potentially leading to greater number of sports injuries and slower recovery time following injuries;
      increased falling asleep in class, poor memory and retention
      increased obesity
