At the August 18, 2015 Board Meeting, the Board members unanimously authorized the creation of a District-wide committee of no less than seven and no more than eleven members.  Appointments to the Committee will occur at either the September 15 or October 6 Board Meeting. It is anticipated that the Committee’s work will span from October, 2015 through February, 2016 with at least two meetings per month except in December.

The Committee’s work will focus on a study of options for the number and sites of our elementary schools in the future. The specific charges to the Committee will be determined by the Board of Education at its September 15 Board Meeting.


According to the California School Code, a 7-11 Committee shall complete the following tasks:


  1. Review the projected school enrollment and other data as provided by the district to determine the amount of surplus space and real property.

  2. Establish a priority list of surplus space and real property that will be acceptable to the community.

  3. Cause to have circulated throughout the attendance area a priority list of surplus space and real property and provide for hearings of community input to the committee on acceptable uses of space and real property, including the sale or lease of surplus real property for child care development purposes pursuant to Section 17458.

  4. Make a final determination of limits of tolerance of use of space and real property.

  5. Forward to the district governing board a report recommending uses of surplus space and real property.
