San Dieguito Union Cancels Reopening Amid Legal Threats
The San Dieguito Union High School District has rescinded plans to reopen campuses for in-person instruction following a lawsuit from the teachers union. The decision was 4-1, with Board Member Michael Allman dissenting.
“Since the union doesn’t like it they just file a lawsuit and we cave to them,” he said. “I just don’t think it’s right to reinforce that behavior” (KPBS).
San Dieguito’s reopening plan was particularly ambitious. The goal was to open campuses part-time on Jan. 4 and full-time starting Jan. 27. But San Diego County is currently in the purple (most restrictive) tier. There is a dispute over whether the district can reopen classrooms at that level.
