The sale of the current school property at the Bernal location and subsequent purchase
of the Arroyo property looks to be a sound business decision.
What would be the status of Village High School should this transaction occur?
What is the plan for increased vehicle traffic to an already congested traffic situation?
What type of housing is being considered for the current district property location?

So district raised bond money for new school, decides to build two classrooms instead, then says….never mind we’ll sell that land to developers.

Then decides to sell Bernal property and buy new building for district officials.

Did I get that right?

When do we pull out the pitch forks and torches? This board is beyond incompetent and borderline criminal.

Botched COVID response
Botched return to school
Botched downward grade correction

Wow, getting ready to cash in. They can put a lot of dense housing on that property in some of the most prime real estate around. The land residual (sale price) will be determined by the density allowed on the property. Between the $500M in bonds, massive land transactions, etc the city/district is playing around with megabucks. Let me be the first to name the potential development. How about Enclave at Bernal?

“A first reading about authorizing the issuance and sale not exceeding $74,355,000 . . .” I have been told the district has yet to sell the $34mm in bonds for the elementary school. It is not evident on their web site: Web Link (toward the bottom of the page).

I would not be against the district *and* Village moving or the sale of the Bernal property, but not one dime from any bond funds—current or future attempts.
