They have been trying to close the school for years- saying the school is losing money. But the school actually brings in a large amount of tax dollars from the resort community it serves- the school district continues to refuse to provide even a basic budget to show/prove the money isn't there. Now they are attempting to close the school but continue to collect the money from the ed bond/property taxes. WTH?! We (the school) have retained a lawyer- they (the school district) have been threatened with legal action and still no numbers... how can we get this info? Anybody know??
Many schools will be closing in Cali. My sons school is not going to but two near him are. Next year the class sizes will be 42 in Kindergarten (32 this year) in grades 1-4 there will be 32-36 kids per class (20-25 this year). Education in Cali is a joke. I looked up my sons school on Great schools.net and it scores an 8. I looked at his new school when we move to Iowa and it scores a 7. When you look at what makes the school you realize the 8 in Cali is not as good as the 7 in Iowa. It is based on the state average which is low in Cali and very high in Iowa. I was shocked and felt bad I did not do more research. My sons school only 32 percent of the kids can pass a basic math test for their grade. That is pathetic. This is not hard testing just giving the kids math problems and they cannot do them. Cont.
