The Association of California School Administrators is calling on teachers to speak out against a legislative effort that would set limits on how early schools could begin classes. The state Assembly is expected to vote on SB 328 before the legislature adjourns this Friday. It would forbid middle schools from starting the day before eight a.m. and require high schools to start no earlier than 8:30. In a letter asking teachers to contact their representatives, the association says the bill eliminates local control and ignores potentially negative safety, fiscal, family and community impacts of such a statewide mandate.
