Bloomington Schools May Begin School At 7:40AM

Last updated on Thursday, May 5, 2011

(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - The Monroe County School Board voted this week to push middle and high school start times back to 7:40AM, every day but Wednesday.

On those days, the start time will be 8:35AM to give teachers time to work together.

Many parents argued against the change, citing a study that shows earlier days decrease teens' brain function.
