Glendale : School Secession Clash

March 19, 1992

School officials and parents clashed again Monday on the attempt of residents in a La Canada neighborhood of 1,000 families to break away from the Glendale Unified School District.

More than 200 attended the second of two hearings before the Los Angeles County Committee on School District Organization on the proposal to join the neighborhood, home to 250 students, with the La Canada Unified School District.

Proponents repeated their demands to hold an election. Opponents again said that the loss of the area could mean closure of Glendale's Mountain Avenue Elementary and cost the district $400,000 in state funds.

The 11-member county committee must now decide by June whether to hold an election on the matter and, if so, what area to include in the voting. If an election is called, it would be on the November ballot.
