U I II I II L- DEADLOCKED .McClymonds and -Lowell Junior Are Involved; Gradual Transfer Planned Plans for thenerging of McCly-' monds High School and Lowell Junior High School to orm a new high school in West Oakland on the Lowell site, were announced this morning by Charles W. Snook, president of the Board, of Educa- v tion. ' The announcement fol loved months of study by school officials In an endeavor to solve the problem of reconstructing McClymonds High School to conform with recommendations of the State Division of Architecture. The auditorium and one classroom unit at McClymonds have been closed since August, 1934, when the State Division of Architecture made its report to the Board of Education. .''"','. COST $330,000 ... "Reconstruction of McClymonds High School to satisfy present requirements of the State Division of Architecture would cost approxi- mately $330,000, an excessive amount In view of the needs of the district" declared Snook. "Our studies have revealed-a shift In population from the McClymonds district to other sections of the city, with a corresponding, drop in enrollment ' The LowcUk site now is considerably nearer the center of the high school population in West Oakland than ii McClymonds:" PLAN '"'OUTLINED The plan calls for a gradual transfer of students from McCly monds to Lowell. Next fall the low tenth grade will be dropped at McClymonds and added to Lowell, with the students normally entering the low seventh grade at Lowell remaining in Lafayette, Tompkins and Cole elementary schools. The high seventh grade and all of the eighth grade at Lowell ire to be absorbed later by the neigh boring elementary schools, and the remaining grades at McClymonds will be transferred, one at a time, to Lowell. A decision concerning final disposition of the McClymonds property probably would not be reached for some time, Snook indicated. ' " ' , . i,. - ., ...
