Members of Portola’s 7-11 committee wrapped up their last scheduled meeting Feb. 29 with a list of six recommendations to present to other 7-11 committees and the Plumas Unified School District governing board.

In contrast to prior meetings, when many members of the public expressed their opinions, chairman Dave Nelson said that the last meeting was mostly an internal business meeting spent tidying up loose ends. Nelson said that the seven committee members agreed on the recommendations that he was going to present during a League of Women Voters forum scheduled for March 1.

“The community has been amazing and really stepped up to the plate,” said Chester area 7-11 Committee Chairwoman Traci Holt, and while the wintry weather might have kept some people from attending the Feb. 29 meeting, it did not keep those in attendance from discussing recent developments and issues.

During the public comment portion of the meeting, the layoff notices to full-time staff members, recently approved by the Plumas Unified School District (PUSD) board of trustees, dominated the discussion.
