    Peralta site Super Sports Golf and Recreation Center owners to address Trustees on proposal for long term lease tied to education
    In its second "On the Road" meeting this month on Thursday, February 20, 2014,  this time at Canyon High School, the Orange Unified School District School Board will hear from one of the owners of Super Sports Golf and Recreation Center located at the former Peralta School Site.

    Information Item 12 B (Agenda page 20) reports that Kent Hawkins, a partner of the Super Sports Golf and Recreation Center, has requested to present to the OUSD Board "an updated idea for leasing the property on an ongoing basis".  The presentation will be  a proposal to the OUSD Trustees about a new idea about combining sports and education at the Peralta Site. 

    Information in the Agenda about the proposal includes "making it a more educational oriented facility while still keeping the sports" . The business which currently leases the Peralta site is proposing to change the name to "Super Sports and Education Center".  The Agenda information also includes this description  " a new idea, where several schools can have their sports as a shared resource"  and " this will help us pay the district additional rent over time".

    Earlier in the same meeting, the Closed Session Agenda 4B again includes the Peralta Site as part of the Closed Session discussions with the purpose of "Instructions to negotiators will concern items and conditions for possible sale of sites" .

    OUSD Board to approve Riverdale site sale for $15.9 million
    After the February 20th Closed Session and before the Information Item Super Sport presentation, the OUSD Trustees will vote to put the former 11.5 acre Riverdale School site up for sale for $15.9 million dollars. The resolution includes the exemption from environmentally sensitive areas as outlined in  the California Environmental Quality Act  (CLICK ON) 15206(B) 4.

    Action Item 13 A ( Agenda pages 3-15)  on the February 20, 2014 agenda includes a Resolution to sell the City of Anaheim  site and consider counteroffer to the stated price.

    The resolution also declares that no public agencies (which would have first choice in buying the land) had expressed any interest in acquiring the land.

    The OUSD Board voted to close Riverdale at the height of the Great Recession in December 2009.  The school closed in June of 2010 at an estimated savings of $349,000 annually to the cash strapped district. In October of 2013, OUSD Trustees officially voted the Riverdale site to be surplus property. 

     Discussion of  Automatic External Defibrillators on Agenda
    On  August 7, 2013 fourteen year-old Canyon High School student Mitchell Cook collapsed and died during football practice at the Anaheim Hills high school. 

    As a result of Cook's death and other reported national high school related deaths, in October 2013, the OUSD Board directed staff after a presentation on AED's to report back with a policy for their potential use.

    In a bit of fate, Information item 12B and 12 C (Agenda pages 16-19) on Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) will also be discussed at the Canyon High School meeting on February 20, 2014 meeting.

    The information item on the progress and change to the Board Policy's to allow AED's are included in theses two agenda items.
