Can we afford to lose 14 classrooms? 

A non-LAUSD charter school with 330 students has applied for “available” space in the school district, under Proposition 39. LAUSD has offered them 14 rooms at North Hollywood High because under this law many spaces that are not traditional classrooms are considered “available.”  This will most certainly impact the success of all programs including our beloved band, orchestra & jazz band.

What would we lose if this co-location is approved?

Forced to release common area spaces by 15% required for charter school classes including the Library, Auditorium, Gyms, Athletic Fields, and Computer labs.

How would this impact our student environment? 
  • The Music Room could be taken to house “floater” classes during 2 periods each day, which would require adding desks and chairs, destroying what music students consider to be their home here on campus.
  • Teachers displaced and forced to “float” to different classes each period they teach.
  • More discipline concerns
  • More facility challenges
  • More bathroom plumbing and fixtures in disrepair, without toiletry supplies
  • SAS & Gifted Students could lose focused class staff support

Loosing 14 rooms, NHHS would likely need to eliminate or reduce many offerings, including:

  • Computer Labs computer classes
  • Parent Center
  • Workrooms for Leadership, NoHo Robo, Science Olympiad, Botbal
  • Rooms utilized for sectionals, workshops & chamber music
  • Weight room with exercise equipment
  • College Counseling center, and assistance areas for Career & College Admissions

What Can YOU DO?

Other Schools have successfully fought off charter Co-Locations proposals, but only when many families…

  • Attend this meeting
  • Get informed!
  • Tell LAUSD why there’s no room for another school at NH
  • Keep telling LAUSD: SAVE NHHS and OUR PROGRAMS!
  • Download this flyer & help us get the word out!
