The scorecard is an accountability tool that measures student performance in clear and concise ways. Murphy said it gives an unprecedented level of transparency and accountability. Superintendent/ President Kevin Trutna added that the chancellor's scorecard is receiving national attention, as the feds attempt to standardize student assessment across a number of areas. All 118 California community and junior colleges are measured on students' persistence, progress, career technical education, remedial progress and completion rate. Colleges are grouped together in cohorts using factors such as socioeconomics, budget, school size, high school graduation rates and more.

Book sale raises funds for library Diann Jewett Quincy Friends of the Plumas County Library The Quincy Friends of the Plumas County Library would like to thank the community for continuing to support the Quincy branch of the Plumas County Library. Despite the inclement weather, our February 2014 quarterly book sale was a great success. We sold books, received generous donations and renewed membership and added new members to the Quincy Friends of the Plumas County Library. Total proceeds were $1,720.36! It is an amazing amount of income when you consider that all children's books are free, hardback books cost $1 and all other books are less expensive. We want to thank all of the individuals in the community who donated their gently used books, helped us set up and take down the sale, became members of the Quincy Friends of the Library, bought books, made donations and brought their friends to the sale. We use the money for new books, best-sellers book leasing, and audiobook leasing, the children's summer reading program, and we are now helping with the afterschool program. We hope to have some additional enhancements in the near future and will keep you updated on our progress with serving all of the library patrons. 'If y.ou are interested in becoming a member of the Quincy Friends of the Library you can join at the library or contact Secretary/Treasurer Diann Jewett. We also accept book donations for our future sales. Books can be donated at the front desk of the library during regular business hours or by calling Diann Jewett, 283-3873, to arrange a donation pickup. We look forward to seeing you at the May quarterly book sale. SUPES: from page 1A Design checkers Johnny Mansell and Scott Satterlee are the newest members of the Quincy Design Review Committee.

The public benefits by receiving improved online access. An even bigger deal The Plumas County Sheriff's Office struck a deal of its own with Plumas-Sierra Telecommunications. Plumas-Sierra needs some of the sheriffs transmission capabilities and the sheriff, in turn, will receive fiber optic connections at its Quincy office, the jail and the Portola substation with no reoccurring cost or maintenance fee. Plumas-Sierra will also provide a link to the Lassen County Sheriffs Office. "This agreement has been a very long time in coming," Sheriff Greg Hagwood said. But he's pleased with the result, deeming it a "win-win situation." "This will greatly expand and improve the communication that we have," Hagwood said. Bob Marshall, the general manager of Plumas-Sierra, said that the arrangement saved the company the cost of investing in expensive equipment. "It fLxed the problem from Claremont (in Quincy) to Beckwourth," Marshall said during an interview when he learned that the supervisors hod approved the agreement. "It's a fine deal," he said. Hagwood said that the deal has put the county "on the leading edge of what has been theoretical" to this point. "We are on the verge of doing something that no one else in the state can do," Hagwood added, and in a later conversation said that he would be able to discuss those details in the near future. Hagwood noted that in this case Plumas County's small size and unique relationships allowed this arrangement to Occur.
