School board tables faculty layoffs

As their meeting stretched toward 10:30 p.m., members of the  Plumas Unified School District governing board voted unanimously to table teacher layoffs until a special meeting Feb. 22.

Bret Cook made the motion. "Given the comments we've heard tonight," he said, "I think it would give the public more confidence" if the vote were postponed.

Earlier in the meeting, teacher union president Barbara Benge announced that 87 percent of the district's certificated staff had voted no confidence in superintendent Glenn Harris. She cited failure to provide for academic needs in favor of building a reserve, the compromised process and timeline for school closures, and "a climate of intimidation, fear and retaliation."
