2022-2023 New Middle and High School Start Times

In the 2022-2023 school year, school districts across the state must implement a later start time for middle and high schools. In 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom placed some restrictions on what time schools start at. This bill, known as Senate Bill 328, does not allow middle schools to start before 8 am, and does not allow high schools to start before 8:30 am.

Class of 2022 Graduation Information

We are eagerly preparing for graduation ceremonies this year for our graduating classes at Central Coast High, Marina High, Monterey High, Monterey Adult School and Seaside High. Last year, we partnered with the Monterey County Fairgrounds and the ceremonies were so successful that we will again host our events at this venue. We know having families attend graduation is important and the benefit of hosting them at the fairgrounds is the ability to allow seniors to have enough tickets.

The district and your student’s high school are working aggressively behind the scenes to ensure this year’s graduation ceremonies are special for our Classes of 2022.

All graduations will be held on Friday, June 3 at the Monterey County Fairgrounds located at 2004 Fairground Road in Monterey. The times are as follows:

Marina High School: 9:00 am at the Pattee Main Arena
Central Coast High School: 10:30 am at the Payton Stage
Seaside High School: 12:00 pm at the Pattee Main Arena
Monterey Adult School: 2:00 pm at the Payton Stage
Monterey High School: 3:30 pm at the Pattee Main Arena

Important Information

Provided below is important information. When students begin to pick up their caps and gowns, and other items, additional information, such as required entrance tickets and assigned seating and instructions will be provided.

The graduation ceremonies are ticketed events. Each graduate will be allowed ten (10) guests admission by ticket only. If a student needs additional tickets they can request them from their school principal or office staff.
Audience seating will be fixed or marked, with readily identifiable signs to indicate section, row, and seat.
Graduates are to arrive 45 minutes prior to their ceremony time and report to the student staging area. Once a student enters the staging area, they will need to remain with their graduating class for the remainder of the ceremony - exiting and re-entry will not be permissible. Families will not be allowed in the staging area, but can begin entering the site ceremony venue for their assigned seating.
Ticketed guests are recommended to arrive no earlier than 45 minutes prior to a ceremony to allow for the prior ceremony to conclude and attendees to exit.
Graduates and their families are guests of the Monterey County Fairgrounds and are expected to follow all Monterey County Fairgrounds guidelines as well as expectations from our school sites.
All graduation ceremonies will be streamed LIVE on MPUSD TV ( and LifeTouch Photography will be onsite capturing a photo of graduates as they exit the stage with their diploma.
We understand that families will want to take photos of their graduates; however, to ensure we are able to prepare and clean for the ceremony following your graduate’s school, we kindly ask that ticketed guests exit the main fairgrounds seating area immediately following the ceremony.
