With the start of the new school year approaching, Vallejo City Unified School District trustees on Wednesday, learned that things seem to be running smoothly with the various campus moves and upgrades.
In his report, Superintendent Adam Clark said that the Widenmann Elementary School campus has been cleared, and everything moved to the new Solano K-8 school campus. The students and faculty of both will share that site, where construction is under way, with new play structures and new furniture going in. The John Finney High School site has also moved, he said.
These changes are part of a consolidation plan to adjust for declining enrollment and also to provide a facility for the Elite Charter School, that was approved by the Solano County Department of Education despite its being rejected by the Vallejo school board. Elite is the project of former Vallejo school superintendent Ramona Bishop.
