According to the Provincial Department of Education on 23rd, Guidelines for Primary Schools to Delay Morning School Beginning Time has been released recently to guide the practice in the primary schools throughout Zhejiang Province. Primary schools in various parts of the province may adjust the school time according to grades and seasons, and the arrival time for students of grade one and grade two may not be earlier than 8:00 am, and should be properly delayed in winter.

According to the guidelines, in 2018, at least one pilot school should be set in every prefectural-level city to practice the reform before it is implemented in all the schools. By 2019, all the counties and districts should carry out the reform in some or all of the primary schools.

In addition, the guidelines also demand a more scientific setting of morning class time. Primary schools in various areas may adjust the class time in the morning on condition that the class may not begin before 8:00 am., and for students of grade one and grade two the class time may not be earlier than 8:30 am. In addition, class periods in the morning and afternoon should also be set scientifically to regulate the in-school time of the students.
