Pleasanton: Swelling Schools and Some Sales

bunch-o-kids.jpgThe Pleasanton school board will discuss the issue of crowded high schools at Monday (January 7th) night’s school board meeting. Apparently this issue has been raging for the last several years, as Pleasanton has seen a large “bubble” of youth swell their high school ranks. Some have proposed building a new high school (albeit small, “alternative” high school) to relieve the population pressure. School district officials plan to review the number of students enrolled around the district at Monday night’s meeting. Interestingly this isn’t the first time that the district has met with controversy surrounding the prospect of building a new school. Several years ago, Pleasanton Unified School District filed suit against the developer Signature Properties for ostensibly breaking their agreement to pay part of the cost of building a new elementary school, which had been planned for the elite Ruby Hill enclave.
