We are collecting both online and paper signatures. Your paper signature is important to prove to the board that you are in their voting jurisdictions. We can also show the paper petition to the San Jose city council as proof that we are San Jose residents and have our voice heard by the City. Please send us a message if you would like to sign in-person, even if you already signed the online petition.

It has come to my attention that OGSD intends to sell the Glider school property to housing developers who will likely build more homes per acre than the existing neighborhood.
These are my concerns with adding housing of any kind...
Instead, I would like to see...
Please seek a buyer who will improve the quality of life for the existing community. Please reject offers from any developer who would build housing more densely than the surrounding homes.
I respectfully request OGSD to send physical mailers to all residents and homeowners before every decision is made, include the community in the decision making process.
Glider Neighborhood Resident
Talk with your neighbors.
Share this site on social media.
Share with your friends in ALL of OGSD's areas - this is a district wide problem. There will be future campus closures and what happens here sets a precedence for the entire district. Further, the current budget issues do not give us assurance that any funds from proceeds will be used responsibly.
Click on the “Request to Speak” link to share your opposition. (Agendas and request to speak forms are available 48 hours prior to the meetings.) We need every available neighbor to show up and speak. If you do not feel comfortable preparing your own comments, here is a script you can lean on.
"My name is _________. I am a resident in OGSD.
I am alarmed that the board is making decisions about what is in our "best interest" and still plans to move forward with the sale of the Glider property without engaging residents or addressing our concerns.
I respectfully request physical mailers from OGSD before every action related to the Glider property and ask you to seek broad community input BEFORE each action is taken. Please hold community meetings.
I request the board to withdraw from negotiations with The True Life Companies and work with the community to issue a new RFP with conditions that protect the neighborhood from housing that would be more dense than existing homes.
We will hold board members accountable for any lack of transparency, community engagement, fiscal planning or mismanagement of funds when it is time to vote in any future reelection campaigns or for proposed increases in parcel taxes.
Please stop the sale and work with us toward a win-win-win, for our community, the district, and City."
