Document Description
The Vallejo City Unified School District (VCUSD) proposed to close Vallejo Middle School (grades 6-8) and transfer those students to the Springstowne, Franklin, and Solano Middle Schools beginning with the 2011-12 academic year. Vallejo Middle School is currently located at 1347 Amador Street and is part of a larger campus shared with Vallejo High School, located directly north of the school across Nebraska Street. The combined campus is approximately two miles from the future Springstowne Middle School campus at 850 Rosewood Ave (former Hogan High School); two miles from Franklin Middle School at 501 Starr Avenue; and four miles from Solano Middle School at 1025 Corcoran Avenue. Springstowne Middle School is currently located at 2833 Tennessee Street, but would be relocated to the former Hogan High School campus at 850 Rosewood Avenue starting with the 2011-12 academic year. Hogan High School students would be transferred to either Vallejo or Bethel High Schools.
