Facility Improvements Planned for Schools in El Cerrito

The San Diego Unified School District is making long range plans to upgrade facilities at Horace Mann Middle School and Crawford High School. Three meetings in November and December gathered community input and presented site layout options for both campuses. These long range plans will help to guide Proposition S bond funding for projects on both campuses over the next 5 years.

Planning for Prop S projects at Crawford and Mann will take place in a series of meetings that begin in January 2011. Times and locations for these meetings will be sent to the ECCC email list when they become available. If you’re not already on the ECCC email list, you can ask to be included by sending a message to ECCC@cox.net.

At the third master planning meeting on December 2, architects presented 4 site layout options based on community input at previous meetings. These options included the possibility of relocating the football and baseball fields. Improvements at the football field include the possibility of installing lights. To view the Master Plan site layout options, visit the School District website at http://www.sandi.net/sandi/site/default.asp and follow the links for "Proposition S" and the “School Facilities Project Map.” From the pages for Mann Middle School or Crawford High School, select the link for the “Master Plan 2010.”
Residents can express their viewpoint about projects at school facilities by attending upcoming meetings and by contacting the San Diego Unified School District.
