Committee's objectivity called into question amid Reagan name proposal
June 13, 2010 (Alpine) – A naming committee for the Grossmont Union High School District’s 12th high school in Alpine has been disbanded by the GUHSD governing board.
“Among other items, our Board clearly heard the request for a community survey, and was reminded that the Bond language included the new high school in Alpine serving both the Alpine and Blossom Valley areas,” Gary Schwartzwald, director of adult education and special projects, wrote in an e-mail to parents in Alpine.
GUHSD TO HOLD HEARING APRIL 15 ON PROPOSAL TO NAME SCHOOL AFTER REAGAN
By Bill Weaver, Chairman, Alpine High School Citizens Committee
April 8, 2010 (Alpine) -- There has been correspondence accusing the Alpine High School Citizens Committee (AHSCC) of having name bias, and of being anti President Ronald Reagan. The AHSCC does not take a position on the naming of our high school, other than supporting (1993) Grossmont Union High School District (GUHSD) Board police #7310, without exception, and nobody representing the AHSCC promotes an anti-President Ronald Reagan position.
The AHSCC's non-scientific sampling of area residents (www.ahscc.com), suggests that less than 10% of Alpine support's the GUHSD March 11th Board action to deviate from the original BP#7310.
