As the new school year begins, some high school students in the Vacaville Unified School District say they are having a hard time adjusting to their school’s new, late start time.
Vacaville High and Will C. Wood High moved their start time from 7:50 a.m. to 8:40 a.m. in an effort to allow students to get more sleep. But now, one week into the new school year, some students and parents are wondering if it’s really working.
“It’s not that we gained an hour in our day or shortened the school day. They just pushed everything the kids have to do an hour later,” Rojana Turner, whose 16-year-old daughter Emily is a student at Vacaville High, said.
