Last w~k's Pluma~ u11ifi~o School District board meeting at C. Roy Carmichael Elementary School's library featured just two short public comments. The first was by Portola resident Bill Powers, the chair of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Commission, who spoke about the confluence of a host of county entities, including mental health and the school districtl that are working together on the Local Control and Accountability Plan. Next up was Plumas County Teachers Association president Ron Logan, who also praised the LCAP team's efforts to take the reins and lead the district toward better control and utilization of funds under the newly implemented Local Control Funding Formula. As stated on the California Department of Education's website,, the goal of the state-mandated LCFF is to "significantly simplify how state funding is provided to local educational agencies (LEAs). Under the new funding system, revenue limits and most state categorical programs are eliminated. LEAs will receive funding based on the demographic profile of the students they serve and gain greater flexibility to use these funds to improve outcomes of students. Greenville High School football field dedicated The board approved a GHS senior's request to name the high school's football field after longtime coach Charles Otto Brackett. Kashira Deal tuuh uLl thv L;hallen~ tu honor Brackett for her senior project. She held public meetings and garnered 100 percent support from the GHS Booster Club. Deal said Brackett coached football, softball, baseball and wrestling during his stint at GHS that began in 1963 and ended in 2011. Deal is constructing a 2-foot tall by 10-foot long cedar sign upon which she will carve, in Old English script, "Brackett Field #24." Additionally, she plans to sell alumni plaques with former athletes' names and athletic numbers. Superintendent's awards Continuing the tradition she began at the start of the school year, Superintendent Micheline Miglis awarded two students the prestigious award that honors exceptional students who do well academically and accomplish great things in and out of school. The Superlntendent's Award was presented to sixth-grader Cooper Holbrook, 11, who was voted most improved student at CRC. Principal Bruce Williams told the board that Cooper is widely regarded as the most hopeful student in school; he went from the worst to the best. Williams said Cooper started his school career with five suspensions in his kindergarten year -- a school record. From there he continued to struggle in school and amassed 21 discipline referrals before February 2012. Now, Williams said, Coopv, is a model student, achieving the bronze honor roll and voluntarily cleaning up the cafeteria every day at lunch recess. He loves to read, enjoys swimming and plays Little League baseball. The second recipient of the superintendent's award was unable to attend the ceremony. However, Principal Sara Sheridan said that Portola High teachers collectively chose junior Victoria Benuto, 16, to receive the award. She said Victoria is well-rounded and diligent in all that she does. She is an amazing soccer player and shares her creative talents doing choreography for show choir. Victoria was recognized as a true leader who is a critical thinker, responsible, polite and always willing to go the extra mile. Closed sessions Both the county and district boards convened to closed session; neither session resulted in any action taken. The next regular school board meeting is scheduled for May 8, 5 p.m. at Chester Elementary School.
