Their outside consultant that they hired to look at overcrowding had said (obvious option- they had to, to get paid) look at rezoning, for example. LIKE gomes, and that caused all the hulaa baloo.
It could have been any other example (that they had to cite) and it would created the same stupid ruckus.
This ruckus is long long since over yet people keep raking it over and over again.
I am a Gomes parent and watch this development very closely and dear to my heart. NO "talk" or "plan" is in place for rezoning in Mission SJ area. If you are concerned, you should call Fremont unified school district...they will tell you the plans that are in place but they will not give answers to anything else. You can ask them whether Gomes will be rezoned or you can ask them whether Mission Valley will be rezoned...they will give you the same answer...currently there is no plan to rezone Mission SJ High.
Having said that...if you are interested in purchasing a house in MSJH, buy Chadbourn area as this in the only school that has no risk of being rezoning. One of the seller at this area but in an ad that reads this:
"Unlike homes in Gomes, Mission Valley and Mission San Jose elementary attendance zones which are in high risks to be rezoned to leave Mission San Jose schools in near future (see FUSD shcool zoning report, 2007), this home is in the Chadbourne Elementary Attendance zone, in the middle of Mission San Jose School attendance zone. You can be sure to stay in Mission School for ever. Very rare a Court in a Court (double court) location! Safe for kids to play around."
With that comment, it only leaves you with Chadborne as all other schools are at risk. However I have to caution you that Chadbourne's price is higher and the waiting list is also not too short. If you do not want to deal with this, I suggest you don't buy Mission house at all. If I can do it all over again, I would buy in Mission area because rezoning issue is a constant threat.
Will it affect home prices? Not at all. The draw is still Mission San Jose High school.
They relocated Weibel Elementary and it did not have any noticable affect on Mission San Jose home prices.
