High school district votes to acquire middle school property in Carmel Valley

By Karen Billing

The San Dieguito Union High School District Board of Trustees adopted a resolution at its April 4 meeting to acquire the 13.8-acre property adjacent to Canyon Crest Academy for the district’s new Pacific Highlands Ranch Middle School. Proposition AA monies will be used for the purchase price of $2.7 million.

“This is an exciting resolution,” said Eric Dill, associate superintendent of business services. “A lot of work has gone into this moment.”

The district entered into the option to purchase the property with Pardee Homes back in 2003 and has worked with them to negotiate a price.

The cost of the new middle school is estimated at $71.2 million and is expected to open in phases. The first 500-seat classroom building is expected to open in the fall of 2015.

About $4.7 million remains in the North City West JPA (which includes the Del Mar Union School District and Solana Beach School District), funding that is earmarked for the middle school’s construction.

Dill said there are still several items to be completed prior to the close of escrow, including an environmental site assessment, completion of the district’s California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) compliance and approval by the California Department of Education.
