Elementary Schools Configuration Discussion

Elementary Schools Configuration Discussion

 

At the September 20, 2016 Regular Meeting, the Board members received information and discussed two options relating to the elementary schools configuration issue: 1) keeping all five schools open; and  2) keeping four schools open and closing Summit School.  The Board voted 4:1as a tentative position to keep all five schools opens. 

This tentative position was the subject of a public hearing on Wednesday, September 28, 2016  at 5:30 p.m. in the Matilija auditorium. After public comments, the Board members voted 4:1 to end the almost year-long study, beginning with the work of the 7-11 Committee in October, 2015; thus keeping all five elementary schools open for the 2017-18 school year and thereafter.
