Press Release: SFUSD Won’t Appeal Superior Court’s Ruling Regarding CEQA Violation

May 25, 2022

From the George Washington High School Alumni Association:

The Board of Directors of the George Washington High School Alumni Association
is pleased with the decision of the San Francisco Unified School District Board of
Education to accept the decision of the Superior Court and not to appeal the Court
decision. The GWHS murals have been and remain a treasure for the entire
community. We remain committed to the protection and preservation of these
magnificent works of art. The Alumni Association will continue to work for the
development of an educational curriculum to make the murals an integral part of
the community for years to come.

“The Court finds that [SFUSD] ignored CEQA in pursuit of a pro-determined result: the
administrative record is devold of evidence that [SFUSD] followed or even attempted
to follow the requirements of the law. (Page 2, Lines 4-11. Judge Anne-Christine Massullo Final Ruling)

  1. The old School Board took up a lot of time and money hiding history instead of teaching it. The new School Board is charting a new path promoting education. While the litigation is over, now is the time for the School District to bring all Washington High School stakeholders together for a greater understanding of our history and today’s challenges.
