15yr daughter won't get up in A.M.

I am looking for suggestions on how to deal with my 15 year old daughter, sophmore, when it comes to get her up and moving in the morning. She sets her alarm (very loud) but sleeps right through it every morning. I go in and wake her up at 6:30a.m. and make sure she's on her feet before I leave the room. Infailably, she gets back in bed and falls asleep. I waker her again at 6:45a.m. by either yelling upstairs, asking her 10yr old sister to go wake her, or calling her on her cell phone. Sometimes she gets up, but most of the time it takes a 3rd or 4th try before she finally gets going. Because of this ritual, we are almost always running late. I am hoping that someone has some suggestions of how I can get her to become more responsible for getting herself moving in the morning and not making everyone suffer for her procrastination. It is frustrating for me, but I wonder how she will deal with college or a job when I'm not there to hound on her every morning. Ugh!
