Antonovich ‘Concerned’ About Noyes
(04/13/2006)

Supervisor lays out issues in letter to Clark

By André Coleman -- Pasadena Weekly

LA County Supervisor Mike Antonovich is siding with residents who oppose plans by Pasadena Unified School District officials to transfer students from the Rose City High School continuation school to the recently shuttered Noyes Elementary School in Altadena.

Antonovich expressed his support for opponents of the plan in an April 10 letter to PUSD Percy Clark.

In the letter, Antonovich also criticized the makeup of a committee studying the restructuring of the school district, which includes only one member from Altadena. Along with Noyes, the district has closed three other schools, another one in Altadena, in order to close a $6.5 million gap in the district’s operating budget.

“The residential character of the area surrounding Noyes Elementary School is not appropriate for an alternative school such as Rose City,” Antonovich wrote to Clark. “I share the Altadena community’s concerns with this potential transfer.”

Along with Clark, the letter was also sent to Eva Lueck, superintendent of business operations for PUSD, and Ken Balder, chairman of the Altadena Town Council.

The PUSD Board of Education voted to shutter Noyes and Edison, both located in Altadena, and Allendale and Linda Vista schools in December, prompting calls to have Altadena break off from PUSD and form its own district.

Secession signature petitions have been circulating around Altadena since mid-March.
