Members of the La Cañada Unified School District's Governing Board held a workshop Tuesday evening to discuss publicly their findings and gain input regarding dispensation of the former school district office adjacent to Palm Crest Elementary School. There were approximately 25 individuals in attendance to hear plans. Mike Leininger, assistant superintendent of facilities, presented a review of background information for those in attendance, including options and financial implications and discussed all methods that have been used to explore use of the site if it was kept in the district's land bank rather than sold.

Few school districts have as unusual a site for their administrative offices as does the La Cañada Unified School District. Located north of Foothill Boulevard at 5039 Palm Dr., the LCUSD administrative offices can be found through a gated entryway. The parking lot is shaded and despite Palm Crest Elementary School being next door, the grounds appear quiet and serene. A visitor might feel at home right away. And why not? The district offices were once the summer home of the Bullock's Department Store family.
