PUEBLO – Supporters held the second rally in a couple of weeks in an effort to save one of Pueblo’s four historic high schools.

Officials from District 60 are considering closing Pueblo East High School as part of their plan to rein in finances.

Part of the reason the school is in danger of closing is that it needs about $102 million dollars in repairs.

The District says in a statement it is having “very rich and positive dialogue” with stakeholder groups as it continues to develop a master plan. Officials also say they are working to be as transparent as possible, and encourage the public to visit the district’s website for up-to-date information.

We are having very rich and positive dialogue with our stakeholder groups as we continue to work towards the development of a facilities master plan for our school district. This is very challenging and important work that we are engaging in, and we are encouraged by the progress we continue to make together.

The district is working hard to be as transparent as possible throughout this process. We know the amount of the information is overwhelming, but we encourage the public to visit our website to review all documents that have been shared with our stakeholder groups.
