FUSD & CUSD Consolidation Info

The Florence Unified School District and the Coolidge Unified School District will be asking the voters to decide whether the Coolidge School District will consolidate three of their schools to the Florence District. The schools are San Tan Heights Elementary School, Mountain Vista Middle School and San Tan Foothills High School. If it passes, the Florence UnifiedSchool District would incorporate these three schools beginning July 1, 2016. As a side note, the Florence Unified School District has been conceptually approved to build a new high school in 2017 due to Poston Butte High School's high enrollment. I have attached a Fact Sheet to this post so we can be transparent throughout the process. The Florence and Coolidge Districts will be holding information nights over the next couple of months so questions can be answered in person. The election will be on November 3rd.
