Cell towers on high school district sites to be discussed in future

San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Ken Noah remarked at the Aug. 16 meeting that the district has taken a lot of criticism about the process they went through on the proposal to place cell tower arrays on the Canyon Crest Academy campus.

“The buck stops here,” Noah said, confirming that cell sites at CCA are completely off the table.

Noah said there are some things in the handling of the cell tower issue that they would’ve done differently in hindsight but others they might have done the same. Their previous experience hadn’t shown them that there would be such concerns about the issue — they’d never had those problems before. They looked at the cell arrays as a way to partner with a local business and also as a revenue source.

Noah said he would like to bring back a discussion at a future date about whether they would entertain cell towers at any SDUHSD school and if the answer is that they should, then what process would they take in consideration of that. If the board is uncomfortable with cell sites at schools on a whole, it would simply be taken off the table as an option. No timeline has been set for the discussion.
