Reconfiguration Report

Many districts throughout the state, including Hacienda La Puente, are experiencing declining enrollment. We are exploring opportunities to consolidate schools beginning the 2024-25 school year to combine resources to create more educational opportunities for students at all our schools and establish long-term stability for our educational programs.

Below is the Final Reconfiguration Report that the Board will vote on during the November 9, 2023 Board Meeting.

On October 9, 2023 the below report was posted and presented for the October 12, 2023 Board Meeting for discussion.

At the October 12, 2023 and the October 26, 2023 Board Meetings Public Hearings were held where the public provided comments on the report and recommendations. An additional Public Hearing regarding the Reconfiguration Proposal will be held during the November 9, 2023 Board Meeting.

There have been 17 Community Meetings and 13 Staff Meetings. Overall there have been 3,218 digital survey responses and 830 participants at the community meetings hosted at 15 different school sites and virtually. The community and staff responses helped create the plan and concerns are addressed in the report.

 The current consolidation proposal does not include the high schools, no properties are proposed to be sold, and there will be no layoffs due to reconfiguration.

Messages to the Community

A Message from the Superintendent Regarding the Upcoming Board Meetings

Dear Hacienda La Puente Unified Community, 

I want to remind you all about the two upcoming virtual/in-person Board of Education Meetings today, Tuesday, October 17 and tomorrow, Wednesday, October 18. 

Today's meeting will be a continuance of the Regular Board of Education Meeting held on October 12, and will resume at 5:30 p.m. in the District Office Board room. The meeting will continue with 5.0 Consent Items pulled for separate discussion and action and continue with the remaining agenda items. The public comments section of the agenda was already covered on Thursday, October 12 and therefore the continuation of this regular Board meeting does not include public comments.  

The Board will be holding a Special Study Session on October 18, 2023 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss declining enrollment affecting La Puente and Workman high schools. Members of the public wishing to provide public comment on this topic may do so by visiting the District's Board of Education webpage for more information on how to address the Board and gain access to the meeting. 

Public comments are an essential part of our Board meetings and we value the input of our community. Speakers are reminded to conduct themselves respectfully and to adhere to Board rules for public comment to ensure that everyone who wishes to speak has the chance to be heard. In addition, we ask that speakers remain mindful of the students and children who are a part of our audience and that we all serve as role models for good behavior and civil discourse.  

Thank you for your support and understanding.  

Thank you,

Superintendent of Schools,

Dr. Alfonso Jiménez
