The board has just voted to remove Option 3 from the list of possible closures. This was Sequoia Elem/Middle and Monte Gardens. They are now removed from the closure list.
Linda Mayo has just moved to close Glenbrook and Holbrook Elementary.
Sherry Whitmarsh seconded.
Motion passed 4-1 (Hanson -no), Glenbrook and Holbrook are closing.
Gary is now proposing a new option: Send entire population of Glenbrook to El Dorado as one unit. And close Westwood. Westwood could be the campus to house the 6th graders from Glenbrook and El Dorado. El Dorado would house 7-8th graders. This is an ongoing discussion live now, and may not be voted on tonight.
Sorry, more unprofessionalism from Cheryl Hanson. She has made a very tough decision even tougher, she's now further dividing the board, and degrading even further, the trust in the board. My opinion. But it was very disheartening to hear how she chose to express herself tonight. Dennler, appears out of her element, and almost in awe of the process... and has expressed much chagrin over the Brown Act.
Silverwood or Westwood may be the next decision...
At this time, there is discussion of another public meeting to discuss next steps, possible more closures, or other options. Next stop , next Tuesday February 15th for more closure talk (in a roundtable setting) w/ the help of the SCAC. February 22nd would be more community input and final decisions.
