Document Description
Azusa Unified School District (District) is experiencing declining school enrollment and proposes to close the SHS campus. Approval of the proposed project would cease all SHS campus operations-including an alternative education program, Student Opportunity for Academic Recovery (SOAR), and Azusa Adult Education Center (AAEC) program-and transfer the SHS programs and students to the GSES campus. The existing GSES primary programs and students would be redistributed to either MES or CMES, and the District's elementary attendance boundaries would be realigned. Transferred programs and students would be accommodated in existing facilities, and no new classrooms would be installed. The purpose of the proposed project would ensure tong-term financial sustainability of the District.
