San Juan district weighs starting school 5 minutes later to let students get more sleep
The San Juan Unified School District board will consider delaying start times at most campuses by five minutes next school year. The district envisions additional five-minute shifts in the subsequent two school years. The change comes as research suggests students – particularly adolescents – are not getting enough sleep in part because they have to arrive at school too early. The discussion is scheduled for 8 p.m. at district headquarters, 3738 Walnut Ave., Carmichael.
Rocklin council considers development at former golf club
The Rocklin City Council will consider entering negotiations to allow development on part of the former Rocklin Golf Club. Under the proposal, the city would allow “medium density residential development” on 42 acres of the property, while the city would acquire 27 acres for open space and receive 114 acres as a donation. The golf course closed in 2015, and the city says residents have called for government intervention as the property has gone without maintenance. The City Council meets at 6 p.m, Council Chambers, 3970 Rocklin Road.
