Has anyone heard if Vieja Valley is closing after next year? My wife is hearing rumors that it will be. Hope she's wrong.

I've heard rumors about VV and Hope. Since learning of Hope ESD budget issues at the beginning of the school year there's been rumors that one of the schools could close. However, they can't just close a school. There's a lot of research/investment that has to go into a closure including what to do with the facilities, redistricting, etc. A lot of that would trigger public meetings.

This is not true. I have been to most school board meetings this year, and although they have not ruled out closing a school at some point years down the line, there are no plans to close any of the three schools next year, or for several years. They would have to spend a lot of money to close a school, so if they did it would take several years of work. They would have to figure out which school it would be, Monte Vista, Vieja Valley, or Hope. You can help keep all three schools open by donating your time and money in the Hope School District Educational Foundation and/or your local PTA.
