After a great deal of discussion, the Governing Board approved Scenario 6 of the Attendance Boundary Committee’s recommendations at tonight’s Board meeting.
— San Marcos USD (@SanMarcosUSD) February 21, 2018
At Tuesday evening’s Board Meeting, the Governing Board voted to select the boundary adjustments recommended by the Attendance Boundary Committee in Scenario 6.
In addition, the Governing Board approved an implementation plan beginning with the 2018-19 school year. This plan provides various grandfathering provisions to current students in effected study areas at the elementary, middle and high schools.
Over the next several weeks, staff will be working to take the direction received from the Governing Board and implement it for 2018-19. The grandfathering provisions will be clearly explained. In addition, we are preparing attendance boundary maps that reflect the changes and can be more easily read by our community. Information will be posted on the District website and individuals impacted will be personally notified via US mail and/or email. We appreciate your patience as we work through the details of this change.

Update from The Real Families for San Marcos (Anti Brookfield development group)
Have you all signed the petition for the building of 200+ townhomes past the firehouse…before the new neighborhood of Rancho Tesoro? Despite many residents fighting this during January’s meeting, city council voted for it anyway…not caring about the residents concerns. In order to stop them…we need a referendum – about 6,000 signatures the next couple weeks.
This development will attend Double Peak. Residents want concerns of traffic and overcrowded schools addressed first.
If you haven’t signed, here are some dates:
Upcoming petition hours at Starbucks (on S. Twin Oaks Valley Rd. next to Flippin Pizza)
* Mon, Feb 5, 6-8pm
* Wed, Feb 7, 6-8pm
* Wed, Feb 16, 6-8pm
* Mon, Feb 19, 6-8pm
* Wed, Feb 21, 6-8pm
Must be San Marcos resident and registered voter!
Brookfield has started their own campaign, creating fake accounts and asking for signatures to UNSIGN the petition.
