A comprehensive daily HS schedule, one that supports an increase in the quality of the educational experience expected in the Ann Arbor Public Schools, shall be constructed with consideration of the following:
- We believe that to ensure equity and access we must address barriers we know exist for students and families, such as transportation and cultural biases, and, in addition, provide adequate supports in areas such as self-advocacy, academic intervention, and mental/emotional health.
- We believe in student-centered education that considers unique student needs, offers choices, and supports a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
- We believe in the evidence-based findings regarding teen sleep that shows how sleep deprivation negatively impacts students’ health, safety and academic performance, particularly for underperforming students.
- We believe in a thoughtful and careful planning process that maximizes the positive impact that variations in start times, daily schedules, and school-year calendars can have for all students and stakeholders.
