The Carlsbad (Calif.) Unified School District had planned to tear down the football stadium at Carlsbad High soon as part of a 2½-year renovation project launched this fall, but a shift in plans will keep the stadium in place through 2008. The makeover for the entire Carlsbad High campus, budgeted at nearly $87 million, will occur as the district builds a second high school. That high school, expected to cost $95.4 million, is scheduled to open in fall 2011.
