Dear Parents and Neighbors:
As Superintendent of the Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD), I am proud to report that our schools rank among the best in the State. However, we are facing some big challenges—and we need your input.
All eight of our schools are aging and need attention. Our two schools west of I-5 are old, deteriorating, and costly to operate. Dramatic increases in enrollment are occurring on the east side of our district. If these significant and urgent needs are not addressed, the District’s educational program and local quality of education may suffer.
Our DMUSD Facilities Master Plan outlines significant facilities needs. DMUSD has prepared a proposal for school reconfiguration to address our most pressing issues. As part of meeting the needs for facilities financing, the DMUSD Governing Board may consider placing a local school bond measure on the November ballot.
Accordingly, I want to invite you to attend one of four DMUSD Town Hall Meetings hosted at our neighborhood schools for an important conversation about your schools. As DMUSD parents, residents and taxpayers, you have an interest in these schools. Your opinions are important to us.
Please make time to attend. We are listening! Thank you.
Holly McClurg, Ph.D.
