A message from SAN MARCOS UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

Good Afternoon,

At Tuesday evening’s Board Meeting, the Governing Board voted to select the boundary adjustments recommended by the Attendance Boundary Committee in Scenario 6.

In addition, the Governing Board approved an implementation plan beginning with the 2018-19 school year.  This plan provides various grandfathering provisions to current students in effected study areas at the elementary, middle and high schools.

Over the next several weeks, staff will be working to take the direction received from the Governing Board and implement it for 2018-19.  The grandfathering provisions will be clearly explained. In addition, we are preparing attendance boundary maps that reflect the changes and can be more easily read by our community.  Information will be posted on the District website and individuals impacted will be personally notified via US mail and/or email.  We appreciate your patience as we work through the details of this change.

Sincerely,

Melissa Hunt, Superintendent

Residents decry San Marcos housing development approval – The Coast News Group

A group of residents who have expressed frustration with the pace of development in San Marcos said the City Council’s recent approval a 220-home development on Twin Oaks Valley Road is the final straw.The group of residents plans to pursue a referendum to reverse the council’s 4-1 approval of Brookfield Residential Properties’ proposal, which would re-zone about 23 acres near the southwest corner of Twin Oaks Valley Road and Village Drive — just south of Cal State San Marcos — from commercial to residential to pave the way for the new homes. Residents packed council chambers on Jan. 23 to urge the council to vote against the second reading of the ordinance approving the project. The council had voted two weeks earlier to approve the first reading.They said that the city is approving residential development at a much faster pace than the infrastructure needed to support it, pointing to overcrowding at San Marcos’ schools and congestion on key roads and State Highway 78 as evidence.“It’s the next development on the docket and we are fed up,” said Kelly Shipley, one of the chief organizers of the opposition. “What we want to see is development with infrastructure to support it.”Their message to the council was clear: slow down.
