The majority of residents support transferring Sagebrush from Glendale to La Cañada Unified, Jewel City school officials announced this week.

Of 1,604 registered voters living in the Sagebrush area of La Cañada, 43% of them responded to a survey on potentially transferring the territory.

In all, 695 people responded by phone or online, with 85% of them saying they would “definitely support” the boundary change.

Meanwhile, 7% said they would “definitely oppose” it, Eva Lueck, chief business and financial officer for Glendale Unified said during a school board meeting Tuesday.

When asked whether the districts should pursue an open enrollment option, or change boundaries, 79% of responders supported making their homes part of La Cañada Unified, while 16% opted for open enrollment.
