January 9, 2016 (Alpine) – In a court hearing this morning, Judge Joel Pressman approved the following timetable for the Alpine high school trial:


January 28, 2016:  GUHSD & Alpine will both submit their intentions regarding the scope of the trial including the issues they would like the Judge to consider during the trial.


February 4, 2016:  A status conference will be held to finalize the trial issues and to set the trial schedule and length of the trial.


April 8, 2016:  Tentative trial start date.  Both sides will appear, ready to begin trial that date. However, trial may actually not start until the following Monday, April 11.


April 11 - 22, 2016:  Tentative dates set aside for trial.  Court is only held M - Th, so if the trial extends past Thursday, April 14, it would resume on Monday, April 18 and could extend through that week.


At stake is whether or not the Grossmont district will be required to turn over bond funds to build a high school for Alpine.
