So it appears that Glendale Unified’s College View School for special needs students is finally going to get some love.
After the campus — built in 1977 — was passed over during the last bond go-around, district officials now are poised to give it a makeover in the $17 million to $19 million range. The most expensive proposal would revamp the site to accommodate traditional students for a “mixed” student body, a model that is favored by state officials.
But more than that, it would give teachers the amenities and badly needed infrastructure to prepare their students for the future.
As school board Vice President Christine Walter said, “Given that we did nothing for College View during Measure K, I would say they certainly deserve a little extra this time around.”
We couldn’t agree more.
