El Puente Replacement Plans Move Forward


Plans for replacing the El Puente Community School, which closed in June, are quickly evolving. The Santa Barbara school district is instituting new satellite campuses of Alta Vista Alternative High School that will be referred to as the Quetzal program. They will be located at the Community Action Commission offices in Goleta, La Colina Junior High (for special ed students), the Westside Community Center, and La Casa de la Raza. Truants, expelled students, and those returning from Los Prietos will be eligible to attend.
