Alpine Takes its Bid for a High School to Sacramento


Alpine has never had a high school of its own. That’s not for want of trying.

For nearly two decades, the tiny mountain community has tried to create an independent educational district, one that unifies a high school with its elementary schools and lone middle school.

Each time, it has been met with disappointment.

That outcome looks to repeat itself this week if the state Board of Education accepts the recommendation of its staff to deny Alpine’s latest bid to add a high school to its K-8 lineup.  A public hearing on the application is set for Jan. 19 and there will be plenty of local representation on hand.

Personnel from the Alpine Union and Grossmont Union High school districts, including Grossmont Superintendent Tim Glover and Alpine Superintendent Rich Newman and members of their school boards, will be in Sacramento for the public hearing.

The California Department of Education earlier this month recommended the board reject Alpine’s plan to add a high school. If the board agrees, Alpine will continue to send its kids to other parts of the Grossmont district after middle school.

Grossmont Union High School District schools currently serve about 22,000 students. After finishing eighth grade at Joan MacQueen Middle School, students in Alpine typically go to Granite Hills High School in El Cajon or Steele Canyon High School in Jamul. Getting to both involves long drives along the freeway or winding local roads. That remains frustrating to parents like Wendy Gilbert, who want their kids to stay local. Gilbert and her husband, Chad, moved to Alpine in 2004 with hopes that by the time their son was born in September of that year, there would be a high school for him to attend.

“We were always thinking, ‘If they build it, the people will come,’” Gilbert said. “We loved the community and when we heard they were getting a high school, we thought, ‘Great! Awesome!’ My son’s now 13, in eighth grade… and here we are. It’s horrible.” Gilbert’s son and about 150 other students will graduate from MacQueen this year.

San Diego County’s most recent district to unify was Bonsall, which began proceedings to do so in 2004. Its high school opened in the 2014-15 school year with 65 students. It now has 330 students and will graduate its first senior class this year.

Alpine has been trying to form a unified district since 2002, and has wanted to give residents an opportunity to vote on unification. In November 2004, the state board disapproved a previous Alpine unification proposal.

As for Alpine, the state board has two other options besides denial. One is to determine that the proposal has merit and send it back to the local level for further action. The other is to delay action until more information is received.

Some of the reasons the state believes unification should not be granted are:

  • Declining student enrollment in Alpine
  • School facility costs and the likelihood that a new Alpine unified school district would be unable to obtain sufficient funding to construct a new high school
  • Fewer academic and extracurricular opportunities of a smaller Alpine high school compared to options available at schools in the Grossmont district

Newman said that he would be speaking in depth to the state board members about what a high school in Alpine might look like, and explain that it would not be traditional, but rather “something innovative.”

“What we are looking at in the development of a school is something state-of-the-art in what it would offer,” Newman said. “It would be personalized in nature and offer unique opportunities, very different than a traditional high school. Our world is changing dramatically every day and schools need to be able to adapt.”

The County Board of Education in August 2014 voted to back unification for Alpine. Last year, the San Diego County Committee on School District Organization held public hearings and determined that Alpine met the necessary requirements in the California Education Code for approval of its petition to unify.

Alpine petitioners decided to give it a go again because residents in the area became frustrated that two successful general obligation bond measures that Grossmont Union High School District area voters passed haven’t resulted in the building of a high school for Alpine-area high school students

The bonds totaling nearly $700 million — Proposition H in 2004 and Proposition U in 2008 — included language about the plan to construct a high school in Alpine.

The district did purchase land for the school and has obtained some permits and approvals for construction, and developed some designs, but has not moved any further on it.

Petitioners also said they want a unified Alpine school district for several other reasons, including being more responsive to the unique needs of the Alpine community and geographically isolated high school students, increased collaboration among elementary school staff, high school staff and the community and a school that will provide a shorter and safer commute.

Grossmont district Superintendent Glover said he agrees with the state’s finding that Alpine be denied its request.

“It’s clear that the state spent a significant amount of time conducting a careful review of the facts before making their recommendation,” Glover said via email.

In documentation shared with the public about the coming meeting, the Grossmont district said it believes that if unification occurs, it would “result in harm to our students, teachers and community” and that it is unclear if an Alpine Unified School District “could pass the size of a school bond necessary to build a high school” or could fund the operational costs of a comprehensive high school program.

The state board of education report said that Grossmont believes that a new district “would be at risk of financial failure, threatening the elementary programs of the district.”
