Lighting for Los Amigos High

A PUBLIC HEARING on the installation of temporary lighting for athletic facilities at Los Amigos High School goes before the Garden Grove school board on Tuesday (Shutterstock).

A public hearing on the proposed sports lighting project at Los Amigos High School tops the agenda at Tuesday’s meeting of the Garden Grove Unified School District Board of Education.

If approved, it would provide temporary lighting at athletic fields and courts at LAHS. A resolution to provide the same for Bolsa Grande, Garden Grove, La Quinta, Pacifica, Rancho Alamitos and Santiago high schools was approved at the Sept. 6 meeting.

Affected will be football/track, soccer, baseball and softball fields, as well as tennis courts.

The installation of such lights comes in reaction to SB 328, which requires that all public high schools in the state begin classes no earlier than 8:30 a.m., lengthening the school day and extending athletics past sunset.

SB 328 is a bill requiring the later start to the school day based on the reasoning that studies show better academic performance, school attendance and health for students.

Also Tuesday night, GGUSD employees of the month will be honored.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the district office at 10331 Stanford Ave., Garden Grove. The GGUSD is a K-12 system serving most of Garden Grove as well as portions of Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana, Stanton and Westminster.
