District: School Start Time Change Proposals for 2022-23

As a result of Senate Bill 328, which was signed by Governor Newsom on October 13, 2019, school start times state-wide will change (in some form or another) next year- for the 2022-23 school year. The bill requires middle schools to start no-earlier-than 8:00 a.m. and high schools to start no-earlier-than 8:30 a.m.


Click the attachment below for the portion of the Board Packet that addressed the background information and three proposals.


The San Juan Unified School Board discussed three proposals for start times. Based on initial Board discussion, Option C seems a far shot because it would require hiring a large number of bus drivers, when there's already a huge shortage state-wide.


There was a lot of discussion around Options A and B.


If Option A were chosen, LeGette's start time would move from 8:45 a.m. to 7:55 a.m. (dismissal at 2:25 p.m.). [Carnegie M.S. would start at 8:55 a.m.). If Option B were chosen, LeGette's start time would move from 8:45 a.m. to 8:55 a.m. (dismissal at 3:25 p.m.). [Carnegie M.S. would start at 8:00 a.m.].


The School Board will be voting on which option to choose for next year ('22-'23) at their next Board Meeting on Tuesday, November 16, at 6:30 p.m. You are encouraged to give Board Members input prior to this time.
