Benefits of Territory Transfer

Unite La Cañada Flintridge


One City – One School District

Benefits:    The primary benefits envisioned to result from a Territory Transfer include:

  • enhanced community identity toward the City among those residents and their children residing in the Subject Area;
  • increased involvement by residents of the Subject Area with City activities, events, organizations, and civic life;
  • enhanced cohesiveness between residents and their children residing in the Subject Area with the residents of those residing in the greater City community given that the educational, vocational and extracurricular opportunities will be equitably provided to the entire community;
  • improved self-governance as the needs of the Subject Area can be better identified and addressed given the proximity of La Canada Unified School District (LCUSD) to the Subject Area and the commonalities of interest related to general community issues;
  • improved public safety as City, LCUSD and local law enforcement emergency and operational planning will be unified and better coordinated;
  • allow students of the Subject Area to have the same access and opportunity as their community colleagues for programs, scholarships, and other benefits, under the same criteria and measures;
  • allow the City to expend resources equitably throughout the community, particularly with respect to matters supporting public education, as Subject Area residents and their children will also share as beneficiaries of the support provided.

Additional info on the subject area (western portion of the City of La Cañada)

  • the current number of students in the area who attend the Glendale Unified School District (GUSD) has been determined to be 209 students
