To: Joshua Starr, Superintendent and Montgomery County, MD's Superintendent of Schools and Board of Education

Changing Montgomery County, MD's High School Start Times to 8:15 AM or Later.

Reason for signing

  • Virtual learning for my high school aged child has been an up and down experience with the huge exception of the later bell time. After the BOE April 2021 meeting, I suspect they may return to a 7:45 am start time in Fall 2021. This would be a huge mistake. My child has much more energy and focus with a later start of 9am. Let's learn from the hard experience of virtual learning and keep what did work!
