2015 High School Facilities Community Meetings


During the Board of Education discussions about a potential facilities bond in 2014, several community members asked that the district explore the option of creating one comprehensive high school, rather than maintaining two. The Board agreed to delay creating a plan for spending the bond money on Alameda High and Encinal High until after community meetings were held to discuss this idea. The Board approved a timeline for the meetings in October 2014.

The schedule for the meetings is:
