  • SBSD Budget Roadshow

    We believe it is important for all Solana Beach School District stakeholders to know how the District receives its funding, expends funds, and makes spending decisions. Beginning in early November, a work group comprised of district administrators, principals, teachers, parents, and union leadership began meeting to review the District’s budget components. The purpose of these meetings is to foster understanding which promotes clear and transparent communication regarding the District’s fiscal resources.


    This work group is gearing up to present this material to our community in a series of “Budget Roadshow” forums. These discussions will be held throughout the District at various school sites. Please find the dates and locations for the upcoming meetings below:


    Wednesday, February 6, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. at Solana Santa Fe School

    Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. at Solana Pacific School

    Wednesday, February 27, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. at Solana Ranch School

    Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. at Skyline School

  • Carmel Valley Community Meeting Information

    On Thursday, November 1 at 6:00pm, Board President, Dr. Schade, Board Member, Ms. King, Superintendent Brentlinger, and staff will be at Solana Ranch School to share information regarding short- and long-term decisions regarding student attendance assignments in Pacific Highlands Ranch. The Board has been deliberating on this topic for over 18 months in preparation for what they thought would be a building phase-in of homes extending out to the year 2030. As you may have noticed, Pardee Homes has accelerated this timeline and expect to complete these neighborhoods as early as 2023. Thus, it has created the need to develop short- and long-term options for students and families much earlier than ever anticipated. Please click here to view the presentation slides.
