As you may know, Malibu recently refiled a petition to separate from SMMUSD and to create its own Malibu Unified School District.
SMMUSD has created an FAQ document to address the many questions and requests for information it’s received about the proposed separation.
See the FAQ to get:
- an overview of the petition
- an overview of the separation process
- SMMUSD’s and City of Santa Monica’s position on the petition
- some background information on how the district is funded and how students in both communities have fared academically.
SMMUSD encourages all community members to learn more about this issue, in order to understand the educational impact for all SMMUSD students.
