Special school board meeting to discuss possible TK-12 education in Taylorsville

A special meeting of the Plumas Unified School District governing board has been scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 24, at 5 p.m. during which time school district administrators will discuss the details of offering TK-12 education in Taylorsville.

Superintendent Terry Oestreich said that she and others will address facilities, staffing, transportation, food service, curriculum, portable classrooms and her recommendation to partner with Plumas Charter School for Indian Valley students.

Indian Valley families were given a survey to address the several options available to them.  The outcome will be discussed tomorrow night.  “There remain many unanswered questions; however, should our Governing Board agree to take action, we will move into the next phase of planning,” Oestreich said.

In other news, Oestreich announced that as school sites are prepared for the new school year, air scrubbers have been ordered for every classroom and will be distributed as early as the end of this week.

Portola and Quincy students are scheduled to return to the classroom Sept. 7. At the time that decision was made, the Lake Almanor Basin was under a mandatory evacuation order; a start date for those students has not been announced.

As for Indian Valley, more will be known after the Aug. 24 meeting.
