You are invited to participate as the SBHSD Board of Trustees embarks on a most important endeavor!
The San Benito High School Board of Trustees is beginning to investigate possible facility and modernization projects which could be included in a general obligation bond submitted for voter approval.
During the past several years, San Benito High School, due to its fiscally conservative management, has been able to use existing funds to build classrooms, facilities, and upgrade technology. The school has now reached a point where facility and modernization projects can only be financed by a general obligation bond.
In November 2012, the Board approved a Facilities Master Plan which provides for an incremental and strategic framework for meeting the educational needs of San Benito High School students.
Several months ago, the District authorized a community survey to ascertain community support for facility and modernization projects which would lead to the successful passage of a general obligation bond. The result of that poll indicated the community would support improvements focused on the following:
1. Academic and Career Prep Programs
2. Campus Safety (improved earthquake readiness, etc.)
3. Facility improvements that modernize and improve outdated classrooms
4. Water and energy efficiency to enable investment of those cost savings into instruction technologies
On Wednesday, October 30, 2013, in the San Benito High School Cafeteria, from 7:00-8:30 p.m., the San Benito High School District’s Board of Trustees will be holding a special meeting to receive input from the San Benito County community. Wednesday’s discussion will focus on identifying priorities, based on the school’s master plan, which support the recent community polling results. Community input received at this meeting, as well as staff input and recent community polling, will help guide the Board as it identifies priorities for facility and modernization projects submitted for voter approval.
Please visit www.haybaler.org for more details and future updates. We encourage parents and
community members to attend the special meeting on October 30, and share your views about facility
improvements and expansion at San Benito High School.
