Wednesday: Study session on expanding high schools, including M-A and Woodside

The campuses of Menlo-Atherton and Woodside high schools are more or less built out, but more students are coming. Enrollment at M-A is expected to rise by 600 students by 2020 and by 200 students at Woodside. The schools will need more classrooms, more offices and more facilities for various activities. What to do?

A start at answering the question of how to add space to the Sequoia Union High School District's four comprehensive schools will take place Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 5:30 p.m. at the district's office at 480 James Ave. in Redwood City. The school board will meet in a study session to consider the recommendations of a task force formed to discuss how to prepare the campuses for more students.
