Closing Thomas Jefferson: Why?

SCUSD management is recommending that Thomas Jefferson Elementary school close next fall and that the student population (including special education students) merge with Hubert Bancroft Elementary.

During the community meeting held at Jefferson in January, the College Glen Neighborhood Association proposed a two-part plan to reconfigure both Jefferson and Bancroft into viable elementary and middle schools to better serve the community’s needs.

Why were the ideas and concerns presented at that community meeting not even mentioned in the District staff’s recent presentation to the Board?

“These don’t come lightly and we take these (school closures) very seriously.”
