Santa Maria district may end standalone health classes to meet state ethnic studies requirement | Local News
The Santa Maria Joint Union High School District is examining the possibility of eliminating standalone health classes and making changes to physical education requirements to align itself with new state requirements.

At the most recent board meeting, held last week, multiple Righetti High School teachers shared their concerns about the direction the district is headed.
