Students of San Diego High School hosted a rally Saturday to save their school by supporting Measure I on the November ballot.
Both councilmembers Alvarez — a former SDHS alumni — and Todd Gloria back Measure I, calling it a no-brainer. They said if it doesn’t pass, it comes with an additional cost.
“That means San Diego High has to leave this property and we have no idea where we can find a similar sized property for a public high school in the downtown area. You can imagine that would be nearly impossible to do, incredibly expensive and would take years and years to have happen,” Alvarez said.
The community of San Ysidro is celebrating –albeit with some reservations—the announcement of the securing of the final funding needed to complete a sidewalk that would connect San Ysidro with its high school. “A sidewalk in this location is vital to the students that use this route to go to and from school,” Alvarez said. “The community has been advocating for the construction of this sidewalk for far too long. For the entire time I have been in office, this has been and continues to be one of my top priorities.”Read More
