The county committee went against staff recommendations and voted for preliminary approval of the Sagebrush transfer pending an environmental impact report to take place sometime next year.

Fresh from the Crescenta Valley Weekly, we have some new information about the Sagebrush Transfer:
The agenda has been released for the May 3 meeting of the Los Angeles County Committee on School District Organization. The petition to transfer territory from Glendale Unified School District to La Cañada Unified School District is agenda item IX. According to the agenda, County Committee staff will recommend that the petition be denied; however, the official decision will be voted on by the County Committee members on May 3.
The meeting is being held at 9:30 a.m. in the board room of Los Angeles County Office of Education,9300 Imperial Highway, Downey, CA 90242. Parking is limited.
Currently, several students who reside in La Canada are districted to attend Glendale Unified School District schools including Mountain Avenue Elementary, Rosemont Middle School, and Crescenta Valley High School. A group formed to petition to have those students attend La Canada Unified School District schools instead. If it goes through, this transfer would take away a considerable amount of money from the GUSD, affecting several school sites. There is also a bond measure stuck in the middle of this tug of war which may change property taxes for some homeowners.
