"UGLY LIST" Makes the Record

VALLEY SPRINGS — "The Calaveras Unified School District, grappling with a financial crisis after years of spending down reserves, is considering an “ugly list” of cuts that includes shuttering schools and eliminating popular music and sports programs to avoid the possibility of having the county office of education or state take over."

"The district needs to trim $2.8 million from the budget over the next two years and is looking at a two-phase plan that could either consolidate its three up-country elementary schools into one or close Toyon Middle School altogether, said district Superintendent Mark Campbell. Any cuts will not affect the current school year. The district has an annual budget of $28 million."
