Good faith and a few good punches, that’s what Indian Valley School Closure and Consolidation Committee members hit Plumas Unified School District directors and administration with last week.

Chairwoman Centella Tucker compiled a list of questions and an interim report to the district, a prelude to what they will present next month, when trustees and administrators converge in Greenville for their regular meeting.

The 7-11 meeting that almost didn’t happen

On Tuesday, Feb. 7, the District Advisory Committee for Chester area schools, also called the “7-11” committee, met for the third of its six weekly meetings. This meeting, however, almost didn’t happen.

According the Traci Holt, chairwoman for the Chester Area 7-11 Committee, the problem stemmed from the requirement in the Brown Act that notification of public meetings be posted 72 hours prior to the actual meeting in a freely accessible place, and on the school district’s website. As the committee is part of Plumas Unified School District, in order for the meeting to have met this requirement, the district would have needed to post the agenda on its website the day it received it, Friday, Feb. 3, because the district is not staffed on the weekends.
