With the continued rise in Bay Area housing prices, many teachers and educational staff need help to find housing they can afford with their salaries. Peninsula school districts are having trouble attracting staff as a result. Now, some of them — including those serving Pacifica — are doing something about that.

Pacifica School District is working to join the Jefferson Union High School District in constructing low-income housing units built specifically for educational staff. The new housing would be built on Oddstad Boulevard, at the site of a former elementary school.
