WHNC supports Highlander neighbors in opposing proposed high school:

At our March 2 2017 meeting, the West Hills Neighborhood Council’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to support the Highlander Road community in opposing plans to build a high school-level Visual and Performing Arts Academy on the former site of Highlander Road Elementary School.

LAUSD 1/24/17 Community Meeting:

Now that the demolition of Highlander Road Closed Elementary School is complete, LAUSD is coming back to the community to dialogue with neighbors about what provisional fencing, lighting (and / or related elements) should be built at the site for now.  This fencing (if any) will remain until it is determined what type of permanent project will be built at the site. LAUSD Facilities is hosting a meeting for community and neighbors to solicit this information from the community.
The meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 6:00 pm at Haynes Charter for Enriched Studies (Auditorium)
