High school: Parents don’t want to wait 10 years
for a Temescal Valley campus
Remember the high school survey launched by the We Are Temescal Valley Education Committee over the summer? Many of you responded – 1,046 to be exact!
The purpose of the survey was to determine the type of high school TV residents living within the Corona-Norco Unified School District (CNUSD), would like to see here. A comprehensive high school with sports programs, which would take $125 million and at least 10 years to build, or a smaller campus with no sports program – a magnet school with curriculum specializing in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM), which would cost $50 million to $90 million and take four to five years to build?
Most respondents (55 percent), said if money and time were not a factor they preferred the comprehensive high school. Considering the cost and time factor, 62 percent said they favored the STEAM/magnet school over the comprehensive campus. If CNUSD is unable to make progress on building a high school in Temescal Valley, 44 percent said they favored a charter school and another 26 percent said they “maybe” would favor a charter school.
Education Committee member Kelli Noss did an excellent job authoring the survey that was released to CNUSD administrators in October.

Opinions sought on high school
(Published Aug. 12, 2017)
The WeAreTV Education Committee continues to meet with Corona-Norco Unified School District administrators and our elected board member, Trustee Bill Pollock, to bring a high school to Temescal Valley.
The committee has created a survey to find out the type of high school the majority of Temescal Valley residents would prefer – a specialized school vs. a standard high school to be built sooner vs. later?
We are asking all Temescal Valley residents to participate in the survey whether you have students in your household or not. We all pay school district taxes and we all care about property values. A high school located here would increase property values and at the same time decrease commute-time traffic on our roadways caused by parents driving students to Corona schools.
Won’t you please take a minute to share your opinion? The survey is short – just three questions and a place to comment if you so desire.
Thank you …
