School board votes to keep GHS open; other schools to close
In a unanimous vote May 9, the Plumas Unified School District (PUSD) board of trustees voted to keep Greenville High School (GHS) open, with current staff levels. The decision was later clarified as the discussion of whether or not to integrate with Plumas Charter School was addressed.
While GHS will remain open next year, the board also voted to move forward with the steps necessary to integrate the high school with Plumas Charter School.
Taylorsville Elementary School (TES) suffered a different fate than GHS. In a 3-2 vote, the board decided to close the Taylorsville site and consolidate all Indian Valley elementary students to one site, Greenville Elementary School.
Like TES, Pioneer Elementary School in Quincy also received a closure vote. In a 4-1 vote, the board of trustees opted to close the Pioneer site despite concerns about the Quincy Elementary School boiler.
