Chester County Student Forum Delayed Start Time Project. Under the leadership of the Chester County Intermediate Unit, students from across chester county came together to research school start times.
American Medical Association, The American Academy of Pediatrics, and The Centers for Disease Control among others, the students recommended later start times for high school and middle school students across chester county.
