"The mission statement of the Calaveras Unified School District is to provide all individuals with the tools needed to become life long learners who responsibly participate in our diverse changing society. Goals – our district affirms that education is a partnership of parents/guardians, staff, students, and the community. Because the board meetings start at 5:30 p.m. in the afternoon, I question if the school board really wants we the people at the meetings. I suggested at that board meeting that the meetings should start at 7 p.m. instead of 5:30 p.m."
"We, as senior citizens, should also be concerned if we own property in Calaveras County. When you see an article in the Calaveras Enterprise stating “CUSD budget in dire straits,” it gets your attention (Friday, June 27, 2014). It seemed that everyone that I talked with was in shock. Some of the cuts listed in the newspaper are music programs and all athletics, the consolidation of CUSD’s smaller schools (West Point, Rail Road Flat and Mokelumne Hill) and not hiring any new staff."
