Let's hope the Upper Bernal Field stays untouched and that the extremely busy Bernal - First street intersection traffic flows better than it does now.

That's an enormous increase in square footage between the two properties. Why not move Village High to the Hacienda location, since it's more centrally located in town. Then if they need more space, put the overflow admin employees in portables on the remaining Bernal lot.

The idea is to sell the property. Keeping people (and students for that matter) in portables is cruel. The buildings are so old, renovations would be far too costly.

I’m having a hard time believing that the reason to move the district offices is to make a better facility for Village High. Does the Superintendent and his staff really have the best interest of the students at Village in mind or do they just want new offices?

>>The idea is to sell the property.

Not really. That is ONE idea they are 'thinking' about. Also thinking about selling 'some' of the property. the other idea is a bond issue, but that is dud based on history with voters voting them down.

The portables is a temp thing if they go in the direction of demolish/rebuild a small HS. Plus brand new portables with new portable restrooms would be a HUGE improvement in over what the kids have now.

My guess they will sell enough to raise cash to move DO and rebuild a small HS.

How about giving our bond money back for the school you’re not going to build. Crooks.
