The San Diego Unified School District has begun its construction efforts to commercialize Point Loma High School.
We are looking for your support in returning Point Loma High School back to the neighborhood high school that is was built to be and stop the commercialization of its facilities.
The EIR and past school board meetings have documented the following:
The lighting, seating and sound upgrades are not just to support high school activities. These upgrades are in support a long standing plan to rent out the stadium to other organizations, up to 7 days a week. This lighting will be seen from homes and backyards for up a mile away
The San Diego Unified School District has refused to agree to a binding field use policy limiting use to student events only. The current field use policy can be changed by the principal or the School Board at any time (as stated in the EIR). This action by the San Diego Unified School District has forced litigation on behalf of the surrounding community.
The EIR and past school board meetings support this statement.
