Under a plan approved unanimously by board of education members Tuesday night, San Diego Unified will still consider closing the Barnard elementary campus and moving its magnet program; consolidating the high schools on the Crawford campus; consolidating two schools at the San Diego High campus; changing the enrollment boundaries for elementary schools that feed Lincoln High School and consolidating Pacific Beach Middle and Mission Bay High School.

The considerations are a significant curtailing of a process that could have closed or consolidated more than a dozen schools across the district next fall.

After the board vote, there are no schools being considered for outright closure. Their decision comes one week after hundreds of parents, teachers, students and staff from schools facing closure spent over an hour telling board members why their schools should be spared.
