4A Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012 Indian Valley Record LAYOFFS, from page 1A getting information from the district in a timely fashion, She urged the board to "postpone, regroup and look at other cost-cutting alter.na- tives." K-12 options At the board's request, Williams, in his capacity as assistant superintendent, presented a preliminary analysis of forming K-12 schools in Indian Valley, ' Portola and Chester. In developing the analysis, the administrative cabinet assumed an enrollment trigger of 260 students, which is .the current enrollment in Indian Valley. Williams developed two maps for each community: one with K-12 housed on the elementary campus and one with all grades housed on the high school campus. For Quincy, he presented maps of what a consolidated elemen- tary school would look like at each campus.

Closing GHS and consoli- dating K-8 at GES would save an estimated $989,757. After questions from the floor, Williams acknowledged the figures did not include a "late bus" to transport students participating in after-school activities. Williams said such a bus would cost $5'0,000. The analysis can be found on the district's website. Redistricting Following suit with Feather River College trustees, the school board voted to main- tain its at-large voting method and its current district boundaries. The questions arose after the latest census showed a shift in population in the county that left the largest area 40 percent more popu- lous than the smallest area. Ideally the difference would be only 10 percent, at most, Board members felt that the at-large voting method compensated for the discrep- ancy.

Whether or not closures and consolidations actually happen, students are already being affected. Committee member and parent Anna Jeffrey repor/ed that during her work on the Community Contacts Sub- committee, she has been told that Taylorsville students were bused to an vent at Greenville Elementary to acclimate them to consolida- tion. Not so, according to Princi- pal Dr. Gary Stebbins, who said staff and faculty were directed not to talk about that. The students were invited over for a special perfor- mance via Artists in the Schools, a common practice. Comments circulated back and forth for a few minutes, with the general consensus that it must have been the closure-talk of parents at the event that was overheard. Grandmother LaVeta Alexander related a story about how one of her grand- children made a Save TES poster at school and brought it home. "Whatever is happening, it's hurting the children," she said. Committee members are hurting too, for information. The request list they presented to the district almost a month ago has yet to be filled. Chairwoman Centella DA-VID J. HgA-SLETT closures. Basin School Closure Com- mittee (7-11) Chairwoman Traci Holt has been invited to discuss the proposed school closing and consolidation plan as prepared by the Plumas Unified School District (PUSD).

Requests to fill out surveys resulted in 169 responses, all before the committee began meeting. Parent Wendy Weight and the Sierra Institute for Com- munity and Environment were leads on this survey, available in hard copy and online. In sharing the results, Weight said there was a co.m- mon theme throughout. People wanted a dynamic, innovative and flexible cur- riculum for their children, with online, vocational and other class options. If Greenville High School closed, most respondents indicated that they would either work hard to keep it open or seek a local alterna- tive. Only six marked accep- tance that their children might be bused to another community, and 22 were un- sure what they would do. Seven out of 10 people who wrote in a comment under the "other" heading men- tioned that they would move out of the county ompletely. Others wanted more accountability and stricter reviews of faculty and the availability of non-curricular class options, like sports, art and music. There were 94 people who wanted both traditional and charter Options available,. and 90 people wanted a unified K - 12 option. Only eight agreed they would allow their children to be bused out of the valley to school, while 71 would require busing so their children could participate in after-school activities, like sports. And 49 said their children would be unable to .partici- pate in after-school activities at all if they were bused to Quincy or Chester for school. There will be a joint meet- ing of school closure and con- solidation committees in the Greenville schools cafeteria Saturday, March 3, at 1:30 p.m. They will report to each other about their efforts and talk about their commonali- ties and how to communicate with the district board when their reports are due at the regular meeting Wednesday, March 28.
