PUSD is Reconsidering Plan for Donlon's Future

In 2018 the Board selected the option to construct a new 4th and 5th grade elementary school (E-10) at the Donlon School site for about 500 students. The new school combined with the Donlon School would be able to handle the students in the Donlon boundary. Currently, the E-10 School project is in the planning and design phase.

Based on updated information and discussions, the Board of Trustees met on May 7, 2020 to pursue one of three options:
1. Continue with the E-10 School Project, as planned
2. Continue with the planning and architectural services work while developing a comprehensive analysis and alternative options to the E-10 School Project (need to determine date of the report) to the School Board for a final determination on the E-10 School Project
3. Stop/pause all planning and architectural services work and provide a comprehensive analysis and alternative options to the E-10 School Project (need to determine date of the report) to the School Board for a final determination on the E-10 School Project

Meeting Outcome: PUSD Board voted 5-0 to continue with the planning and architectural services work while developing a comprehensive analysis and alternative options to the E-10 School Project to present to the School Board for a final determination of the E-10 School Project.
