It's official: Buena Vista will become a K-8

An email announcement about Buena Vista becoming a K-8 went out today:

This went from being an SFUSD proposal to Buena Vista in December 2010 to being officially announced to Buena Vista families today (Monday, 1/31):

This morning Superintendent Carlos Garcia came to Buena Vista to speak with ELAC parents and others about the District’s proposal that Buena Vista be a K-8 school. The Superintendent told an excited crowd that the Buena Vista communities’s dream to become a K-8 school would be realized this coming academic year. Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, Buena Vista will move to the Horace Mann campus. The pre-K program will remain at Buena Vista due to
site licensing, but all other programs will move, including before and after school care. Seventh and eighth grade classes at Horace Mann will continue until they graduate, and once they do, Buena Vista at the Horace Mann campus will be a Spanish K-8 immersion school. The Superintendent expressed that he has had discussions with the members of the Board of Education and they support the move.
