The volunteer advisory committee voted Thursday, with varying degrees of support, to recommend keeping San Antonio, Mira Monte, Summit and Topa Topa elementary schools open.

At this point in its deliberations, the group suports using Meiners Oaks Elementary School to house the OUSD offices, Chaparral High School, a charter school, other non-profit organizations and an environmental academic center. Another recommendation will likely be for the district to look for ways to increase revenue by increasing attendance and applying for grants.
