Re: the Dec. 12 guest column "Proposed Catalina High School closure is the wrong move."
I left Catalina High School when Mr. Scott was fired. I loved the Catalina population, and the wonderful leadership of Mr. Scott. Santa Rita HS is the most under enrolled of all TUSD high schools. Why isn't Santa Rita being looked at as a UHS alternative? UHS also wants a feeder middle school, the closed Carson Middle School could serve that purpose. Catalina has such a positive impact on the surrounding community. Mr. Scott makes valid points about the lack of support from TUSD Governing Board and 1010 leadership. Keep Catalina open.
