The proposed Northgate Unified School District would encompass the communities included in the current attendance areas of Bancroft Elementary, Valle Verde Elementary, Walnut Acres Elementary, Foothill Middle, and Northgate High Schools.
The new district would consist of approximately 4,600 students. The new district would be considered a mid-sized district and optimal for economies of scale and student performance.
Local control is essential in the success of our public schools. A district that is too large cannot be responsive to the diverse needs of all students that it attempts to serve. This effort is intended to benefit all MDUSD students. By creating a Northgate Unified School District the remaining students in MDUSD will realize an important benefit in the increased per pupil funding through LCFF.
MDUSD has approximately 30,000 ADA
The new proposed District would have approximately 4,500 ADA
