The International Linear Collider is now proposed with a staged machine design, with the first stage at sqrt(s)=250 GeV and an integrated luminosity goal of 2 ab^-1. One of the questions for the machine design is the importance of positron polarization. In this report, we review the impact of positron polarization on the physics goals of the 250 GeV stage of the ILC and demonstrate that positron polarization has distinct advantages.
