Oak Knoll Ave., Pasadena.I would like to thank the community of McKinley, the voters of PUSD and the City of Pasadena for partnering with us to build a school facility that reflects our commitment to excellence in education,” said PUSD Superintendent Brian McDonald. “The McKinley team is already building a learning experience for students that ensures that this school is an engaging and exciting place to learn.”The ceremony marks the completion of the first phase of construction at McKinley, which started in 2013, and consists of three buildings that house the middle school science laboratories, a gymnasium with locker rooms and a kitchen/lunch shelter. The new buildings enclose a playfield and hard-top court to create a protected inner courtyard for student play and gatherings. Sustainable features such as natural light and operable windows connected to the heating and air conditioning systems are incorporated throughout the design, blending modern technologies with the historic campus. A new faculty and visitor parking lot and student drop-off are located along El Molino Avenue.PUSD and the City of Pasadena entered into a joint use agreement for the new gymnasium, which will serve the needs of the school during the day, and the community when students are not using the facility. Recreational opportunities available for the broader community include youth and adult team sports, fitness classes and tournaments. As part of the agreement, the City contributed $1.25 million to the project. The remainder of the funds for the $16.3 million project came from Measure TT funds, a $350 million school bond initiative passed by area voters in 2008. More information on Measure TT can be found at www.measurett.org.Interim City Manager Steve Mermell recently commented, “The City of Pasadena and the school district have a long history of successful joint use projects. McKinley Gym exemplifies our continued commitment to partnership. The new gymnasium brings world class athletic amenities to the students of PUSD while also creating recreational spaces that promote better health outcomes for the community to enjoy.”McKinley School was constructed in 1922 and is listed on the City of Pasadena’s Architectural and Historic Register. The last significant structural upgrade to the campus occurred in 1937.McKinley School, 325 S.

Mishra told a Single Bench of Justice Prathiba M. Singh that the BCI has power to give directions to the State Bar Council under Section 48B of the Advocates Act, 1961, and accordingly the impugned direction has been given.The provision states: For the proper and efficient discharge of the functions of a State Bar Council or any Committee thereof, the Bar Council of India may, in the exercise of its powers of general supervision and control, give such directions to the State Bar Council or any committee thereof as may appear to it to be necessary, and the State Bar Council or the committee shall comply with such directions. He further undertook before the Court that the BCI will conduct a meeting with the representatives of the State Bar Council and attempt to amicably resolve the matter. Taking this submission on record, the Single Judge said that a report of the outcome of the meeting should be placed before it. The order stated, “The grievance of the Petitioner is that they were not afforded a hearing as also that the BCI ought not to be permitted to interfere in the day to day working of the State Bar Councils. Mr. Mishra submits that the BCI would meet with both factions of the State Bar Council and attempt to amicably resolve the matter. The meeting with the BCI shall accordingly take place on 15th March, 2021. On the said date, all the respective groups may be represented and an attempt shall be made to sort out the disputes between the different factions of the Bar Council of Uttar Pradesh. Let the said meeting be held in the premises of BCI, Delhi. Intimation about the meeting shall be given by the BCI to all the stakeholders concerned and the time shall also be fixed.” The matter is fixed for consideration on April 9. Background On receipt of a complaint against the Uttar Pradesh Bar Council, the BCI issued two Circulars dated 19th January, 2021 and 2nd February, 2021 for appointment of a nine-member Committee to look after its activities and a three-member Committee for conducting its elections, respectively. Opposing the same, the UP Bar Council submitted that vide the impugned circulars, the State Bar Council has, in effect, been superseded by the BCI and its bank accounts are put under the control of the three-member election committee. Its main grievance is that the order was passed without affording an opportunity of hearing. The High Court had issued notice on the petition last month. The BCI Chairman has assured that the matter shall be settled amicably after hearing both factions of the State Bar Council.Advocates Swetashwa Aggarwal, Rajiv Bajaj, Saurab Soni, Mannat Singh, Shishir Prakash and Karuna Krishan Thareja appeared for Bar Council of UP.
