VUSD leaders vote to re-open Sierra Vista as K-8 school – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

Noting state mandates to reduce K-3 class sizes, Vacaville Unified leaders on Tuesday decided to direct district staffers to begin work to re-open Sierra Vista Elementary by fall 2016, as administrators recommended.

However, trustees did not specify the school’s grade configuration, either as a K-6, K-8 or 9-12 campus, pending trustee and stakeholder input in August, Interim Superintendent Jane Shamieh clarified in a Wednesday text message.

On a 5-1 vote, with trustee Nolan Sullivan dissenting and board president Whit Whitman absent, coming after more than 90 minutes of wide-ranging discussion at the Educational Services Center, the governing board gave Dan Banowetz, the director of facilities, the go-ahead to contract for Segment 1 construction at the Bel Air Drive campus.
