NHUHSD: Samoa Beach Academy plan is ‘unsound’ and ‘unlikely to succeed’

The school, which is being proposed by a group of educators and community members, would focus on training high school students in building trades, medical jobs and business management. It would be located in a new building that would be constructed in the town of Samoa and have an enrollment of no more than 300 students, according to proponents, who want the school up and running by fall of 2023.

High school in-person learning going smoothly

“Overwhelmingly students who have returned said that they benefited from working in a physical space, and while some felt it was a bit more hectic than usual, and others were worried about some students lying on their health check, students who returned generally said they felt safe and that, at least on campus, precautions were being made,” Arbaugh wrote.

High schools may soon reopen under ‘hybrid’ plan

Vets Hall student feeding initiative opens hunger conversation

“The vets have stepped up with perfect timing to support hungry students,” Carr said. “The vets’ program will benefit the students in Arcata. That leaves two high schools in McKinleyville.
