The city of San Diego has missed a deadline for sending a written update to the state about the status of the proposed schoobrary.
“It didn’t go out tonight,” said spokeswoman Rachel Laing, who said Mayor Jerry Sanders is expected to sign the letter Tuesday morning.
Laing said she doesn’t expect any problems from the state because city officials have already talked to California State Librarian Susan Hildreth about the status of the schoobrary.
Hildreth had previously given the city until Feb. 1 to provide more information about the proposed school district-city collaboration to receive an extension of a $20 million state grant that expired Dec. 31. Hildreth was looking for a revised budget and timeline for the project, which would place a 300 student high school in the nine-story library.
Since Feb. 1 fell on a Saturday, Hildreth had agreed to let the city send its report today.
