Four Feather River Community College District trustees voted Thursday, Feb. 16, to retain the board’s at-large composition and trustee district boundaries. Trustee John Sheehan was absent.

The 2010 census revealed significant population shifts within the trustees’ individual districts. The law requires boards take action following a census if the population shift between districts is more than 10 percent.

The fifth meeting of the Chester Area District Advisory or “7-11” Committee convened Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 6 p.m. in the library at Chester Junior-Senior High School. Attendance for the meeting easily exceeded that of all prior meetings, and led to a lengthy public comment period. The comments made not only highlighted the confusion and frustration expressed at the public forum meeting Sunday, but those feelings from every preceding meeting as well.

It is difficult, to say the least, to separate the issue of school closures and/or consolidations from emotions. In fact it may be impossible as the identities of the communities that stand to be affected, should the Plumas Unified School District (PUSD) move forward on the proposed plan presented by the PUSD administration, are directly linked to the schools in question.
