CITRUS HEIGHTS, Calif. — Citrus Heights Vice Mayor Tim Schaefer proposed starting talks about disbanding schools within the city from the San Juan Unified School District (SJUSD) and instead creating a Citrus Heights Unified School District.  During an Oct. 13 city council meeting, Schaefer invited members of the council to support the idea of putting together a commission of volunteers to establish the city's own school district. A school district is defined as 'a government entity that provides public elementary and/or secondary education to students within a specific territory,' by the California Department of Education.
