San Diego Unified Media Coverage Opportunity: SAN DIEGO HISTORY REVIVED: Hoover High School Iconic Tower Restored, 44 years of history and tradition return to campus

Hello,
Below is the list of this week's media coverage opportunities.
You are invited to cover or attend any of the following upcoming events on the campuses of the San Diego Unified School District.

As ALWAYS, please confirm your coverage prior to attending event.
Thank you.
San Diego Unified Communications Dept.


Wednesday, 7/18 – 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. – SAN DIEGO HISTORY REVIVED: Hoover High School Iconic Tower Restored, 44 years of history and tradition return to campus
Join Hoover High School alumni as they celebrate the revival of their beloved and long-ago-demolished five-story campus tower. Built in 1930, the original Hoover High School served as a community landmark, with its distinctive Spanish-style tower rising from El Cajon Boulevard to be seen from miles away. Beloved by generations of residents and students, the stately tower inspired campus traditions and failed preservation efforts over the decades.

Hoover's first graduating class, the class of 1932, began the "Tower Day Ceremony." In June of each year, graduating seniors went to the top of the school's tower and wrote their names in a large, red leather volume. The tradition has been described as the equivalent of today's yearbook signing, and it ended after 44 years in 1976 when the tower was torn down as part a $5 million renovation project to comply with seismic safety standards. Efforts to raise money to save the tower fell short and failed to preserve the landmark. Before the wrecking ball struck, students, alumni and school officials were invited to climb the tower one final time.

Tomorrow, 42 years later as a part of a campus renovation plan, the historic tower will begin its come-back to the Hoover campus. Demolition will be completed at the end of July, and construction will begin immediately after. Members of the media are invited to cover the demolition beginning at 7:00 a.m. Renderings of the new tower, along with photos of the original are available for download at the link below.

NEWS RELEASE: San Diego Unified Board of Education approves Neighborhood School Safety and Repair measure for the fall ballot

News Release from the San Diego Unified School District, July 10, 2018

San Diego Unified Board of Education approves Neighborhood School Safety and Repair measure for the fall ballot

SAN DIEGO - The San Diego Unified Board of Education unanimously voted tonight to place the Neighborhood School Safety and Repair measure on the November ballot. The vote was 4-0 with Dr. Michael McQuary absent. The measure would provide $3.5 billion in funding to repair aging neighborhood schools and make critical safety improvements, including several aimed at confronting the issue of lead in school drinking water. This will mark the first time the district has asked voters to approve a bond since the water crisis in Flint, Michigan brought the lead issue to the national forefront.

"The Neighborhood School Safety and Repair measure keeps the commitments we have made to the communities we serve," said Board President Kevin Beiser. "It allows us to provide students with the cleanest drinking water in the nation, provides for critical repairs at our aging facilities and creates job-oriented classrooms to prepare our young people for their future."

San Diego Unified is the second-largest school district in California, with close to 200 education facilities. The average age of school buildings is now 48 years old. In addition to necessary repairs, the new measure calls for important upgrades to school safety systems, including intruder alarms and communications technology.

"School Police were deeply involved in planning for this measure, and we believe it will make an important contribution to the safety of our students," said Captain Joey Florentino. He noted this is the first new measure introduced by the district since the school shooting tragedies at Sandy Hook and Parkland, Florida.

Every school in the district will receive upgrades under the bond.

Among the measures included in the Neighborhood School Safety and Repair bond are upgrades to school safety technology that would allow classroom teachers to communicate quickly and securely with others in an active shooter situation.

"Accountability and transparency have always been central to our past bonds, and that is why we have released a complete list of every school and what they will receive through the Neighborhood School Safety and Repair measure," said Lee Dulgeroff, chief of facilities for San Diego Unified. "We hope all voters will take the time to educate themselves about these important safety and repair improvements."

An independent oversight committee and its sub-committees will serve as a bond watchdog, as it has with previous bond measures. Dulgeroff noted the district has received high marks for its bond oversight and management.

For example, the district's Propositions S and Z bond programs: Earned a perfect score of 100 percent for transparency from the San Diego County Taxpayers Foundation in 2016; was honored as "Deal of the Year" by Bond Buyer; received the 'Aa2,' Prime-1 bond rating from Moody's (top rating tier) in 2015; earned the 'AAA' bond rating from Fitch Ratings, Inc. (the highest issued by the agency in 2017.
