March 10, 2017 (El Cajon) -- The Grossmont Union High School District Board voted yesterday to send pink slips to at least 35 teachers and eliminate another 10 vacancies within the 22,000-student district.

Governing Board member Jim Kelly asked if the District could begin special education earlier than ninth grade to prevent having to pay for private school for special education students transferring in from districts before 9th grade.  He was told by a member of the audience “At Elite Academy we can take kids in seventh grade, we even have one sixth grader.”
