G. DISCUSSION ITEMS

* G.1 Student Reassignment for Lake and Shannon Elementary Schools

Comment:

In February 2009, the Board approved a comprehensive school closure plan. Over the previous six years, enrollment in WCCUSD had declined by more than 5,000 students and the District could no long afford to operate as many schools as it had in the past. The closure plan included a phased closure for schools. Shannon Elementary was scheduled to be closed at the end of the 2010-11 school year. The City of San Pablo contributed operating funds to keep Lake Elementary open for both the 2009-10 and 2010-11 school years.

WCCUSD staff has developed reassignment plans for both schools. Students who currently attend Lake and live in the Lake attendance area would be assigned to one of three schools, Bayview Elementary, Highland Elementary or Dover Elementary. Students who currently attend Shannon and who live in the Shannon attendance area would be reassigned to Collins Elementary, Tara Hills Elementary or Montalvin Manor Elementary. Students who have transferred into either Lake or Shannon would be reassigned to their home attendance area schools.

In order to develop the best reassignment plans possible, District staff held parent meetings at both Lake and Shannon schools and invited parents from those schools as well as the schools where those students will be transferred. Staff provided information about the new proposed attendance areas and solicited feedback from parents as well as provided information about the timeline for the intradistrict transfer process.

Staff will use the information gathered from parents to revise the student assignments plans and bring those plans back to the Board for final approval on January 5, 2011.

Recommendation:

That the Board reviews the initial reassignment plans for Lake and Shannon.

Fiscal Impact:

Estimated net savings of $600,000 annually as a result of closing Lake and Shannon.
