Decision on Del Mar Union district changes delayed

The Del Mar Union School District’s 7/11 committee will not make its Dec. 9 deadline.

While the committee has come up with nine proposals to close or reconfigure district schools, it has yet to narrow down its options to present to the board. This delays its recommendation to the board until Jan. 27 unless a special board meeting is set.

The committee last met on Nov. 12 without discussing any of the nine options, only setting up its meeting and a public hearing schedule for the next month. It will not meet again until 5 p.m. Dec. 2, when it will finalize its proposals to the board.

The committee will then hold two public hearings, at 3:30 p.m. Dec. 7 and at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 10.

The Dec. 7 meeting will mark the return of facilitator Gail Wayne. Wayne has been absent from the last several 7-11 meetings, prompting rumors among parents that she had been fired. The 7-11 committee was never able to explain her absence.

Superintendent Sharon McClain said at last week’s meeting that Wayne’s contract had only been for a set number of days and she had a previous commitment that didn’t allow her to stay on further.

McClain said Wayne would be available for the final meetings and to help the committee prepare its recommendation to the board.
