For the last decade, the Anchorage School District has looked into changing the start times for high schoolers.
"It's due time that we really take a serious look at this," Superintendent Dr. Deena Bishop said. "That is if we are serious about the health of our kids and having them do well in school."
The new start time would affect the lives of over 50,000 people. ASD is the largest in the state with over 47,000 students and 6,000 employees in 100 schools.
