Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2010 5B T demonstratio Plumas County Sheriff's Department Patrol Commander Gerry Hendrick and Reserves Coordina- tor Carson Wingfield gave Feather Publishing employees a demonstration of SWAT team equipment and techniques Aug. 11. Some of the more interesting items in the demonstration were "less lethal" shotgun shells. One shell contained small rubber balls that ~read out like buckshot, while an- other consisted of an entire self-contained Taser system, with a range of 100 feet, inside a single projectile. Photos by Joshua Sebold The SWAT team has a variety of grenade-like devides at its disposal. Hendrick demon- strated the flash-bang (on the far right), which is designed to shock and disorient its vic- tims by making a bright flash, loud noise and concussive wave of force, It was very ef- fective -- multiple neighbors were so shocked they called 911 and reported shots fired or an explosion. Two deputies spent more than 20 minutes searching house to house for the source before arriving at the newspaper and learning of the demonstation.

Our staffs have been busy over the past couple of weeks in various Superintendent PUSD trainings to improve our performance for your children. Our K-6 teachers Glenn Harris and administrators have been involved in Literacy Trainings continuing in California Early Literacy Learning. This year; we begin full implementation of California Early Literacy instructional strategies, with the assistance of specialty trained Literacy Coaches at all elementary sites. Our High Schools begin a district wide effort in the training and implementation of Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID); AVID will provide the focus and clarity across all 7-12 curriculum content areas to uncrease student achievement. It will increase student knowledge and study skills while increasing proficiency in content area literacy. The full implementation and expansnon of the instructional practices usually takes 2-3 years before districts see wide scale improvement for all S:tudents.
