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.
The next Regular Meeting of the Board is scheduled for Tuesday, November 15, 2016.
