School Closure possibilities

In today’s Sacramento Bee, reports from last Thursday’s board meeting outline the imminent fact that SCUSD closures and consolidations are definitely on the horizon, but not without significant community input, according to the article.

Word has it that the following schools are being reviewed for closure and/or consolidation as they have low and declining enrollment:

Elementary & K-8 Schools

Alice Birney
Cesar Chavez
Collis P. Huntington
Hollywood Park
Jedediah Smith
John Cabrillo
John D. Sloat
Susan B. Anthony
Theodore Judah
Thomas Jefferson
William Land

Middle Schools

John Still Middle

High Schools

American Legion
School of Engineering & Science

Charter Schools

Father Keith B. Kenny
Genesis Charter
George Washington Carver School of Arts and Science
The Met Sacramento
Sacramento New Technology High School

The article also states:

…the district is also talking with the city, UC Davis and California State University, Sacramento, about leasing parts of the Serna Center, the Marian Anderson Special Education Center, the Old Marshall Adult Education Center, the Fremont School for Adults and the Florin Technology Center. No properties will be sold.
