Coast Unified: Two incumbents leading in race for school district board

Two incumbent trustees were heading to new terms on the Coast Unified School District board.

Dianne Brooke and Del Clegg had led challengers Lee Chamberlain and Gretchen Ross.

The district oversees six schools, with students primarily from Cambria, San Simeon and Harmony; some high school students also come from Cayucos.

Coast Unified is funded primarily by property taxes from an area with some of the highest land values in the county. For this reason, it has avoided layoffs and financial troubles other districts have had.
