Guest Post: Moving MCPS Start Times is Affordable

Moving MCPS Start Times is Affordable


  1. When will MCPS wake up? This a health issue and a safety issue, too! Ensuring our young drivers are well-rested and alert on our roadways is essential. Many HS students drive to school b/c MCPS doesn’t provide buses for the times kids need to be at their afternoon sports competitions or late buses home for daily after-school activities.

  2. Well-articulated. Another note is that students who need to travel sometimes considerable distances to participate in magnet programs are already getting on buses as early as 6AM; this means a wake-up time that is far FAR earlier than is optimal for most humans, let alone teens.
