Supervisors Approve Plan to Preserve Future of San Pasqual Academy



The county Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a plan Tuesday to continue operations at the San Pasqual Academy, as a way to transition it into a multipurpose campus for foster youth.

Supervisors directed Helen Robbins-Meyer, chief administrative officer, to develop a plan for the campus that will include state and federal guidance on licensing standards and more funding options.

The campus would serve those in foster care or at risk of entering foster care, unaccompanied minors and youth in the juvenile justice system.

Board Chairman Nathan Fletcher said in a statement that Tuesday’s vote “advances our clear commitment to providing more foster care services on the San Pasqual site. By adding new groups of foster youth and building out new services we can augment and expand the work that has been done there for decades.”

“We must also ensure that the care and support provided to the existing youth at San Pasqual continue uninterrupted and we will be working with state and federal officials to ensure we can serve as many youths as possible,” Fletcher added.
