J 6A .Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2012 Feather River Bulletin CLOSE: Comr 00t00nity questions closure process From page 1A the east side of North Mill Creek Road or crosswalks from one side of the street to the other. Both Lee Road to the north of campus and Highway 70 to the south pose safety risks for students trying to walk anywhere. One woman said a logging truck almost hit her while was riding her bike on Lee Road, and she had seen near misses on both roads. Process criticized Speakers also criticized the school district for its han- dling of the school closure process. Pointing to the Cali- fornia Department of Educa- tion&apos;s best practices guide- lines and timeline, citizens attacked the district's facili- ties budget study as "narrow and short-sighted," "pre- determined" and rushed. Joe Hagwood, a former teacher and administrator who just finished an interim stint as elementary principal in Indian Valley, called the dis- trict's process "deeply flawed." For the superintendent to make recommendations in the middle of the process was an "unfortunate, deep struc- tural flaw." Hagwood went on to say that from his insider's perspective it was very clear to him from last year that the district wanted to close Quincy El, mostly on the basis of not hav- ing a universally accessible re- stroom. Of the district's study and recommendations, he said the document's "statistics and information were gener- ated to support a conclusion already arrived at." His comments were greeted by a long round of applause. John Sheehan elicited laughter when he noted, "any administration -- look at Syria and Venezuela -- can bring department heads tOgether to ratify an already- made decision." Boland, Michael Jackson and Piers Strailey all called on the committee to take a longer, broader view. "When this crisis subsides, we will reach a new steady state; we don't want to be stuck witha crisis decision." Jackson said the district had been asking the wrong questions. "We're down to 400 kids (at the two elemen- tary schools). Where will they get the best education? The best surround?" We shouldn't be asking, "'What is the cheapest way to get through this crisis?' but 'How do we want our chil- dren raised in the future?' "Does anyone think we put the school of the future next to the mill?" "The first cuts should be furthest from the students," Strailey said. "I'm not con- vinced we're at a critical juncture yet." He encouraged people to look at the money the district was spending on litigation and arbitration. "Why not move the district office and hold onto both schools?' he asked. County supervisor Lori Simpson . said she was concerned about the "fast tracking" of the closure process for the next fiscal year. "We shoUld examine every possibility before we disrupt people's lives," she said, before vowing tofight "to keep our museums open, our libraries open and all our county schools open." A number of citizens spoke of standing in solidarity with Indian Valley, which faces the possible closure of Tay- lorsville Elementary School and Greenville High School. Quincy business owner Jeanne Brovelli said she had grandkids in the Indian Valley schools, Closing a high school would hurt the entire county, she said. "We're all in this together." She called the idea Of busing kids from Green- ville to Chester, or older kids driving the route themselves, "alarming." Sheriff Hagwood said there was a viable number of students to do a K - 12 in Greenville without busing. If the district does bus, ."We're going to see problems that can be avoided. I don't want to see my staff having to address problems brought about by busing." Business owner Gary Vogt's comments seemed to sum up the majority opinion at the meeting, He noted the district's own strategic plan called for "safe, clean, healthy schools- that's Quincy. El!"
