SDUHSD to create committee on high school selection process

A new committee on San Dieguito Union High School District’s school selection process will be formed this fall, in response to frustrations expressed by parents this summer when students didn’t get into their school of choice.

The district made the decision this year to admit all freshmen on the wait lists for Canyon Crest Academy and San Dieguito High School Academy, and both schools are at capacity. But there is still much work to be done for future years, according to Michael Grove, associate superintendent.

High school district board opposes proposed cap on school reserves

The San Dieguito Union High School District board has come out against the cap on school district reserves proposed by new legislation in the state. On Aug. 21, the board approved the adoption of a resolution in opposition to the local reserves cap, part of the Proposition 98 Rainy Day Fund.

Proposition 2 will go out to voters on the November ballot. If it passes and the state’s Rainy Day Fund is established, as soon as even a dime is dropped into the fund, school districts will be required to spend down the reserves.

Solana Beach water district moving to mandatory water use restrictions

Customers of the Santa Fe Irrigation District — including residents of Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and part of Fairbanks Ranch — will face mandatory restrictions on water use starting Sept. 5, in an effort to save water due to an ongoing statewide drought.

The restrictions include a three-day-per-week watering schedule for all homes and businesses, a prohibition on watering for more than 10 minutes unless certain water-saving devices are in place, and a ban on watering between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. each day.

Elections to be held for local school district board seats

There will be contested races in all local school districts except Solana Beach School District. The deadline for candidates to pull papers for the November election was Aug. 8 and all incumbents pulled papers so there was no deadline extension.

The candidate list follows, with identities/professions as listed at the San Diego County Registrar of Voters:

Del Mar, Solana Beach cancel elections and appoint council members

Del Mar and Solana Beach voters might head to the polls in November, but it won’t be to cast a ballot for their local council members.

Rather than hold fall elections, both councils opted to appoint council candidates during two special council meetings on Aug. 20.

Solana Beach Schools Foundation refreshes its ‘look and feel’

To increasingly enrich education in the Solana Beach School District by bridging the gap between vital school needs and state funding, the Solana Beach Schools Foundation (SBSF) is introducing its new name, look, and feel. The refresh will also better communicate the purpose of the SBSF and the programs it funds.

Previously the Solana Beach Foundation for Learning, the SBSF supports Discovery Labs curriculum in science, technology, research, engineering, arts, math, (STREAM) and supplemental physical education by raising funds not provided by the State of California. Collaborating with classroom teachers, Discovery Labs instructors supplement the existing curriculum with hands-on, interdisciplinary lab-based activities.

The final environmental impact report finds nine significant and unmitigatable impacts with One Paseo, eight of them related to traffic.

Carmel Valley attorney wins landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision on cellphone privacy

When Pat Ford brought his first case to the U.S. Supreme Court in April, focused on whether police need to get a search warrant before examining the contents of a criminal suspect’s cellphone, he knew the court had a range of options in making its decision.

The court could have sided with the state of California, which argued that no search warrant is needed. Or it could have forged a compromise between the two sides.
