Local students could be waking up to a new reality — later start times

Andra Belknap, Ojai Valley News reporter
The Ojai Unified School District (OUSD) will form a study committee to explore later start times for Ojai students, according to OUSD superintendent Andy Cantwell.
OUSD's School Board signed off on exploring the idea of later start times during its Sept. 5 meeting. The conversation came about due to California Senate Bill 328, that would require California's junior high and high schools to adopt start times no earlier than 8:30 a.m.
Classes at Nordhoff High School start at 7:40 a.m., Matilija Junior High School classes begin at 7:44 a.m. while Chaparral High School starts at 8 a.m.
OUSD assistant superintendent Sherrill Knox informed that Board that if the bill is approved by the California Legislature, it would likely be vetoed by Gov. Jerry Brown, as he prefers school districts determine start times independently, she said.
