Summary of the 3-12-20 Meeting
The committee met for the last time on 3-12-20 to make a list of the pros and cons of the various options. If removing the financial costs from the picture, the committee is in favor of having 3 separate high schools with separate CDS codes. A fourth option was discussed which is having a new high school, East Campus and the West Ag Center (no comprehensive program at West).
