Healthy Start Times Resolution Update

Last spring, the Board of Education passed a Healthy Start Times resolution to have all middle and high schools (district-managed and charters) start no earlier than 8:20 a.m. to support healthy sleep habits in adolescents. These new start times will begin in the school year 2023-24, not 2022-23 as originally planned. DPS is committed to working closely with our community to make this transition as safe and seamless as possible.

The Healthy Start Times webpage will house all relevant information including FAQs, community engagement events, and resources for families. The first community engagement event is planned for early November. If you have questions, please call our Family and Community Helpline at 720-423-3054 or email facehelpline@dpsk12.org.
