Would you drive to the country for technology?

An 11th hour proposal to transform Tokay Colony Elementary School into a technology-themed magnet school could be the school’s last shot at survival.

Tokay Colony has declining enrollment, and it’s the type of decline that does not indicate the tide can change. There are only six kindergartners and seven first graders enrolled and there’s very few preschoolers on deck to come to school next year.

That has led district officials to recommend closure.

At last night’s meeting, however, the idea of enticing students from throughout Lodi Unified to come to Tokay Colony as a school where technology-based learning is front and center emerged.

Trustee George Neely – who has long pushed for technology-themed schools, particularly high schools, loved the idea. Other trustees appeared willing to listen to a more specific proposal.

So – all this for a simple question for parents: Would you drive from Lodi or Stockton to 13520 E. Live Oak Road for a Technology themed magnet/charter/academy?
