San Diego Unified trustees were scheduled to hear a report today (Tuesday) that proposes more than a dozen schools be closed, relocated or consolidated next year.

The recommendation first released last week comes from the district’s school realignment/closure committee. A formal vote on the proposal could occur as soon as December, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

District officials have said they are facing a deficit of up to $118 million in next year’s $1.057 billion operating budget. The district stands to save $500,000 per campus under the recommendation released Thursday, the newspaper reported.

Campuses facing possible closure are Cadman, Cabrillo, Cubberly, Franklin, Marvin, Paradise Hills and Vista Grande elementary schools. The Barnard Mandarin Chinese Magnet School campus would also be closed and the program moved to Dana Middle School to establish a Pacific Rim language academy.

Additionally, Pacific Beach Middle School would be merged into Mission Bay High School, and the Crown Point Junior Music Academy would be closed, its violin and choral programs moved to Bayview Terrace Elementary School.

Crawford High School would break up its four small academies and revert to traditional comprehensive school status; the Emerson-Bandini campus, which houses two schools, would consolidate into one K-5 program at Emerson; and San Diego High School would consolidate its communications academy with its science and technology program.

The board meeting isset for 5 p.m., at the Eugene Brucker Education Center, 4100
