Early School Start Might Have Academic Advantage

Angela Bettis:

For many students in the area, summer isn’t winding down it’s already over.
Lakeside Lutheran Schools in Lake Mills and Edgewood High School in Madison welcomed students back to campus for the first day of the new school year on Monday.
“There comes a point in time in the summer when, for kids, they say, ‘I’ve gone through my summer camps. I’ve gone through the Little League season, swimming, vacations,’ and they’re ready to see their friends. They’re ready to be around adults that they trust and that they know and start another school year,” said Edgewood High School President Judd Schemmel.
Schemmel said Edgewood High School moved up its start date by one week this year and moved up the time to 7:50 a.m.
