Rancho Santa Fe School won’t pursue 2016 gym bond


Rancho Santa Fe School District Superintendent Lindy Delaney advised the RSF School board that it would be “prudent to delay moving forward” on placing a bond measure on the 2016 ballot for a new school gym. At the Feb. 4 board meeting, Delaney recommended that the board wait until June or November 2018 and continue pursuing private funding for the facility.

Over the past year, the board has considered several options for the gym facility, which was built in the 1970s and is showing signs of wear and tear. The board looked at both a two-court and three-court new gym facility, which would include the amenities of wrestling and dance rooms, and locker and changing rooms.

The two-court option was estimated at $16.2 million, while a three-court option would be about $19 million.
