Leaders of La Cañada sports groups asked La Cañada Unified School District officials not to forget about them. They made their plea as the district investigates the possibility of nullifying an existing contract, and entering into a new one, for the use and upkeep of La Cañada High School’s football field.
The requests came during the city and school board’s joint-use committee meeting Thursday morning.
Concerns about the limited availability of the field under the district’s current agreement with the Arroyo United Foundation and Spartan Boosters Club were raised by members of the La Cañada Gladiators youth football program and a La Cañada High coach.
The district is looking into terminating its contract with Arroyo Foundation and the Spartan Boosters, which lasts through 2018, and entering into a similar contract with a new organization for joint use of the field. A meeting between the three parties is coming up in the next couple of weeks, Supt. Jim Stratton said.
