GUHSD 12th high school

READER’S EDITORIAL: GUHSD BOARD ENDS HOPE FOR NEW HIGH SCHOOL IN ALPINE

October 2, 2011 (Alpine)--The September 29, 2011 Grossmont Union High School District (GUHSD) Special Board Workshop did not turn out as we expected. We expected full consideration of all available demographic data when the Board voted on new boundaries for all schools in the district. We did not get that.
 
The GUHSD Board discussions totally avoided data and charts that offered reasons to build the District’s 12th high school in Alpine. The majority of Board members rushed to hasty judgments, made unfounded conclusions, and then voted to kill the Alpine and Blossom Valley-serving 12th high school (HS12) project.
 
 

NEW DISTRICT BOUNDARIES PROPOSED FOR GROSSMONT UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT: MEETING JUNE 2 FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS

 

May 27, 2011 (San Diego’s East County) – Two proposed options for new boundary lines in the Grossmont Union High School District will be presented by the District’s Boundary Committee at a public meeting on Thursday, June 2 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Instructional Resource Classroom, 301 North Mollison Avenue in El Cajon.

 

One plan, Model 12, includes redrawn boundaries to include a 12th new high school planned in Alpine. An alternative plan, Model 9, provides a contingency in case the Alpine High School is not built and redraws boundaries for the District’s nine existing non-chartered high schools.

“This is a watershed meeting,” said Doug Deane, chairman of the committee. “If there are different viewpoints, people need to speak June 2 at our meeting….Every high school will be affected, whether or not there is a twelfth high school built.”
