Chalk up another victory for teen sleep. The winners this time are students at four districts in Southern Maine, whose school boards have just voted in tandem to delay bell times to give them a shot at getting the sleep they need.
“I am pleased that Biddeford was able to cross the bridge and partner with area schools to make this critical change in service to our kids,” stated Biddeford superintendent Jeremy Ray. “The science is unimpeachable, and the results will be measurable.

Our leadership team in Biddeford has a history of shared services and collaboration, and this is yet another example of what good will and good science can do to help our community.”
