San Francisco schools play game of musical chairs 

A lot of movement is going on in the San Francisco Unified School District.

Last month, the district announced that Buena Vista Elementary School in the Potrero Hill neighborhood will combine with Horace Mann Middle School in the Outer Mission neighborhood to create a K-8 program. Now, district officials are discussing what to do with all the new space left behind by Buenva Vista.

Tonight, the school district’s building and grounds committee will discuss moving Bryant Elementary School from 1050 York Street to Buenva Vista’s campus five blocks away, on 25th Street.

School Board President Hydra Mendoza said Buena Vista’s campus was recently renovated from Prop. A money and Bryant is “busting at the seams,” therefore the district has offered a migration to Buena Vista’s campus.

“Buena Vista has a beautiful campus,” she said. “This is so much better than the thought of closing schools.”

 So what will come of Bryant’s campus? Mendoza said the International High School – currently located in Mission High School – could soon call it home.

“Mission is growing and pushing International out,” she said of the international school. “It’s a perfect option to move to Bryant’s old place.”

Before the moves can be made, however, the board of education will need to approve the ideas. That should happen this spring.
