Update from our Dec. board meeting

  • We enjoyed a fabulous performance from the Miller Creek Pop Choir. Thank you Mr. Rieder and students.
  • We reviewed the 2nd Budget Revision and 1st Interim Budget. You can read the supporting documents and overview online.
  • We discussed the LCAP timeline. I asked for more information about how we will engage community members in the process.
  • We heard public comment from many teachers. They expressed deep concern about the state of our negotiations with the union and shared their personal financial struggles. Our factfinding hearing is on February 3, 2017.
  • We elected Brad Honsberger to serve as our next board President. I will serve as Vice President. I am proud of our transparent public deliberations and wholeheartedly support the outcome of our collective decision making process. 

 

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I encourage you to read the minutes to the board meeting when they are published in January.

  • Hi Marnie, I like your blog! 2 questions?
    1. When will the 2017 calendar be released? I’d love to know when the kids go back to school in August, and it’s not online and school office doesn’t know.
    2. Can you update us more on the issues between the teachers and the unions? I’d love to learn more about their financial struggles. From what I understand, pensions are the things that have drained the coffers. Might it make sense in future to raise teacher salaries but lower pensions? I’d love to understand this more. Thanks!
