Catalina HS foundation looks for alternatives to campus swap with UHS

Posted: Updated:

A site council has been formed to try to find alternatives to a proposal to swap Catalina and University high school campuses.

The UHS vision statement, presented before the TUSD Governing Board in October, recommends relocating UHS to Catalina due to overcapacity issues at the shared Rincon High campus.  

The Catalina HS Foundation posted on its website:

"Catalina High School was left out of the four-month long planning process proposed by University High that moves our school to Rincon (effectively removing it from existence) so UHS can take over our building.  Sixty years of educating Tucson students down the drain.  The TUSD School Board has given CHS six weeks to come up with alternate plans, but appears to back what UHS proposed.  This is all very one-sided."

"We will do our best to protect our students from the disruption caused already and down the line by this proposal." 

A letter linked on the page calls the process “calloused and condescending” and “institutional cannibalism.”

The UHS-Rincon campus is filled with an excess of 2,200 students in a facility built for 2,000, which has resulted in overcrowding and no room for enrollment growth.

Catalina High was designed to accommodate 1,500 students. Currently, it has over 730.
