San Clemente City Manager James Makshanoff will moderate a discussion regarding the establishment of a new school district in San Clemente. A memorandum published June 29 details the factors of the current school demographics and logistics with the city’s borders or adjacent to them. The report can be found on the city’s website at www.san-clemente.org under the Latest News section.
The meeting comes on the back of recent controversies within Capistrano Unified School District, which operates all San Clemente schools, particularly involving San Clemente High School.
The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Sept. 8 at the Dorothy Visser Senior Center, 117 Avenida Victoria. In order to get a proposition on the next election ballot, a petition would have to gather signatures from 25 percent of registered voters within CUSD.
