  • SAN MATEO UNION HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT TO HOLD THIRD PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING SURPLUS PROPERTY RECOMMENDATIONS

    February 12, 2010

    SAN MATEO, CA -- A third public hearing to gather public input on  draft recommendations regarding the declaration of surplus property owned by the San Mateo Union High School District will be held at 7 p.m. March 2 in the small theater at Hillsdale High School, 3115 Del Monte Street, San Mateo, CA 94403. A District citizens’ advisory committee has found that properties on two District sites can be considered surplus: two small parcels at Hillsdale High School in San Mateo and the entire former Crestmoor High School site in San Bruno.

    The 41-acre Crestmoor High campus was closed as a comprehensive high school in 1980 due to a precipitous District enrollment decline. Since then, it has been used to house the District’s continuation school, Peninsula High School, and a variety of private enterprises which have been leasing space there.

    As part of its findings, the committee has stated that any sale or lease of the Crestmoor acreage must be predicated on finding a more suitable and central location within the district for the continuation school and its 240 students.

    The District contained more than 13,000 students in seven comprehensive high schools in 1970. Today, it has 8,500 pupils in six schools.

    As part of its analysis of the capacity of those six campuses, the committee found that the District could accommodate another 2,905 students today and an additional 2,175 more students if extra classrooms were added to those sites where space is available.

    The members of the committee are: Mark Avelar, Paul Belzer, Craig Childress, Dwight Dunn, Skip Henderson, Mike Loy, Deirdre Marblestone, Tom Ricci, John Ward and Neil Wild.
