Seattle Public Schools will ask parents this fall if they'd like to see school start times adjusted to start one hour later.
The national non-profit group, Start School Later, says starting classes at 9 or 9:30 helps students improve memory and reduces tardies.
The group has the backing of sleep specialists and doctors who say it's a great way to improve learning.
The Seattle school district says if it has the support of parents, it will make the late start official in the 2014-2015 school year.
