I am not in favor of building any more classrooms or rearranging long standing boundries until all alternatives are explored and tried before this bulge of 1,700 students hit. The SUHSD needs to think outside the box of more buildings and bond issues. I will not vote for new bond issues until they try and work with what they have.
Here might be the first stop as designed by the State of California Department of Education.

So how long has the school district known about this potential issue? And now they are scrambling to resolve it.
One of the things that local government (including schools) is notoriously bad at strategic planning. One should be able to look at the number of students enrolled in elementary schools now and project within a reasonable margin the number of high school students in 9 - 10 years and plan and budget accordingly. But, unfortunately, that would make sense.

When is the bubble of students expected?
