School Reorganization Updates
The Board of Education recently approved two contracts, one to complete asphalt work at our sites that have not had the asphalt repaired and the other to complete fencing at the sites that do not currently have upgraded fencing. In addition, at the August 9th meeting, the Board approved a consultant agreement for a facilitator to help us with our Azusa High School mascot decision, and they also approved a resolution that will set in motion a 7-11 committee that will look at recommending what to do with our surplus property.
- Both of these processes will look to include diverse voices and stakeholders that represent our community.
- Be on the lookout for marketing materials on how to get involved.
