San Bernardino City Schools To Delay Late Start Until August 2023

Starting in August 2023, San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) students will have new school hours, with classes starting later for those in middle school and high school as part of a state law designed to give adolescents more time to sleep.

Starting with the 2023–2024 school year and in compliance with Senate Bill 328, also known as the Portantino Rule, all middle schools will start no earlier than 8 a.m. and all high schools will start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. to give secondary students more time to get the sleep their growing bodies need. Implementing SB 328 in 2023 allows SBCUSD to continue improving its plan while it continues looking into the impact on families, including those with students in elementary school. The extra time also gives SBCUSD more opportunities to continue informing families and employees about the upcoming school schedule changes.
