California will become the first state to require later start times in response to medical research that shows most teens are sleep deprived as a result of changes to their biological clocks that prevent them from going to sleep early (EdSource).
As mandated in Senate Bill 328, starting next school year. public high schools cannot begin classes before 8:30 AM. The teachers and district leaders worked together to design a bell schedule to meet the requirements of the law and the FUHSD Collective Bargaining Agreement.
