School District Proposes Revised Project for Angels Gate High School

A bureaucratic move by the Los Angeles Unified School District signals that the initial vision for a 1,215-seat high school at Angels Gate Cultural Center has been downgraded.

Officials are now conceptualizing a school of 810 students.

Though the district insisted from the start that it was proposing an 810-seat school, documents released to begin the environmental-study phase set the student number at 1,215. The higher number would have allowed the district to add more classrooms in the future.

The school board will vote on whether to accept the revised proposal at its June 24 meeting, taking place at 2 p.m. at LAUSD headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. For more information about the board meeting, call (213) 241-7002.
