In 2017, Cherry Creek Schools implemented new start times designed to support student learning and wellbeing. Since that time, several other metro-area districts have followed suit or are considering doing so. While existing sleep research indicates the change in start times will have an overall positive effect, we are committed to understanding the impact this change has on our students, parents and staff. Therefore, we are asking students, parents/guardians, teachers, and staff to complete a brief survey about sleep habits, daily routine, and general wellbeing. Comparison with results of similar surveys given in spring 2017 and 2018 will provide us with information we need to evaluate the impact and determine what areas of additional support, if any, may be needed.
You will receive an email on February 7th with information on the student survey, including opt out instructions. A later email will be sent with instructions on how to access the parent survey. All surveys will need to be completed between February 25th and March 8th.
Thank you in advance for completing the survey, which should take no more than 10-15 minutes. Your feedback is extremely important.
