If taxpayers vote against the initiative to raise taxes toward financing schools, that hit will be absorbed in the current school year, according to Schools for Sound Finance.
The passage or failure of the tax initiative in November, along with a reduced county property tax rate, could spell the difference between a $2.3 million and a $3.1 million deficit for Plumas Unified School District for the 2012-13 school year.
The report from the Fiscal Crisis Management Assistance Team (FCMAT) is posted at PUSD’s website.
FCMAT will host a study session for the board of directors Aug. 30 at 4 p.m. The meeting will be open to the public.
The Memorandum of Understanding between PUSD and Plumas Charter School (PCS) is being changed slightly to better reflect the relationship between Greenville High School and PCS.
A committee composed of directors Bret Cook and Bob Tuerck was formed to draft a response to the Grand Jury Report. They will present their response to the board Sept. 12.
A name change to reflect the merging of Taylorsville and Greenville elementary schools was made. The new school is named Indian Valley Elementary School.
The leadership profile for the PUSD superintendent of schools was approved. The board plans to announce its choice for superintendent Sept. 8, providing a qualified candidate has applied.
The Plumas County Office of Education superintendent is an elected position. The board has the power to appoint a superintendent to fill the remainder of the term, which was vacated by Glenn Harris and expires in November 2014.
