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.”

CGNA proposes a two-part action at Thomas Jefferson Elem. meeting

What follows is a summary of the College Glen Neighborhood Association‘s proposal for SCUSD school consolidation/closure in east study area:

Toddler/Pre-School and 7th, 8th & 9th grade program

The Association proposes a two-part action:

1) Combine the Bancroft and Jefferson elementary school attendance areas, and modify one of the existing elementary school facilities to accommodate a k-6 and 4th R before and after school programs for younger students.

2) Modify the other elementary school facility to accommodate a full service toddler/preschool, 7th, 8th, & 9th grade junior high school, with a before and after school 4th R program intended to provide programs and activities for junior high age students. The service areas for the toddler/pre-school and 4th R programs at both locations service the District without any designated attendance areas. The boundaries for the junior high school will equal the combined current elementary school boundaries for Hubert Bancroft, Thomas Jefferson, Isadore Cohen, and O.W. Erlewine.
