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.

Quincy High School students walk back to their campus Friday afternoon after demonstrating in front of the Plumas Unified School District office. Clapping and chanting “Save our teachers,” most of the school’s student body showed up to protest the school board’s unanimous decision to eliminate 32.5 full-time teaching positions during its Wednesday-night meeting.

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.

School closure committee holds public forum

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.

Protest at high noon

Protest-23x-4c-COLOR
Protesters and bright neon signs turn Presidents Day in Chester into a colorful day despite the gray skies. While it was obvious many of the participants were objecting to the threat of school closures, a new message, “Recall Harris,” took center stage. Chanting “Save our schools” were individuals of every generation — there to show support for all Plumas County schools, local businesses and healthy communities. The noise impact increased dramatically when those passing by in cars showed support for the protest by honking and waving. While the signs held a variety of messages, two in particular were standouts: “We Stand United Against PUSD” and “Rest in Peace Plumas County — No School — No People — No Business, Recall Harris.” In addition to advocating for more time for the 7-11 committees to form their recommendations, Guy McNett, an Indian Valley senior resident, offered a unique perspective when he said, “My daughter went to school in Indian Valley 25 years ago. We need young families, we don’t want to just look around and see faces our age.” Photo by M. Kate West
