High school district board to vote on bond



The San Dieguito Union School District board will be making a decision at its July 26 meeting whether to put a $449 million general obligation bond on the November ballot. The money from the bond will go to support upgrades in the district’s nine schools, including a new performing arts center and gym for Torrey Pines High School, as well as the construction of a new middle school in Carmel Valley.

The San Dieguito district last went for a bond in 1971.

“It’s been 40 years and we believe what we’re looking at getting this district in very good standing for the next approximately 40 years,” said Superintendent Ken Noah.“We’re not doing this lightly. We want to put something on the ballot that is defensible and justified…a solid, wise investment in our schools and our high school district.”
