2022-23 8:30 AM Start Time

In 2019, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Senate Bill 328 into law. Under the law, introduced by State Sen. Anthony Portantino, California’s high schools can start classes no earlier than 8:30 a.m. The guidelines go into effect in the 2022-23 school year for most districts, including ours.

In our school district, this law will affect school start times and bell schedules for our high school students beginning next school year. All of our high schools will begin their school day at 8:30 a.m.

The purpose of the legislation is to address adolescent sleep deprivation and its associated health risks, while creating conditions more conducive to academic success. As the next school year approaches, all families will receive a summer mailer that will include the bell schedule from their student’s school. In the meantime, we wanted to provide you with advance notice so that you are aware well ahead of the start of the 2022-23 school year, which starts Aug. 15th for students.

Hawthorne High School Final IS/MND Featured Photo

Hawthorne High School Final IS/MND

In accordance with California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) regulations, an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) was prepared that describes the environmental impacts of the proposed Hawthorne High School Athletic Facilities Improvements Project (Project). The proposed Project would replace existing outdoor athletic facilities on the campus and the Hawthorne Aquatics Facility with new and improved facilities. The IS/MND was circulated for public review and comment for 30 days from March 21st to April 19th, 2022, as required by CEQA. No comments from State or local agencies or members of the public were received on the Draft IS/MND for the Project. As a result, the Centinela Valley Union High School District (District) has not had to respond to any comments. A Final IS/MND has now been prepared, which will be presented to the District’s School Board (Board) for their consideration and approval. The Board of the District will consider adoption of the Final IS/MND and the CEQA required Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program (MMRP) and approval of the proposed Project at its meeting on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
