Morning Read: State lawmaker considers 8:30 start time for middle and high schoolers

LA School Report | February 17, 2017



What time should school start? No earlier than 8:30 a.m., lawmaker proposes

Local teens may catch a few more Zs during the school week under a bill that state Sen. Anthony Portantino (D-La Cañada Flintridge) introduced this week. Senate Bill 328 would require middle and high schools across California to start the school day no earlier than 8:30 a.m. Currently, only 11 schools start at or after 8:30 a.m. at LAUSD. The district has plans to begin what it’s calling a “late-start pilot” that would let more schools start later next year. By Kelly CorriganJoy Resmovits and Sonali Kohli, Los Angeles Times
