IOA Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2012 Feather River Bulletin School district board seats new member Laura Beaton Staff Writer I Plumas Unified School Dis- trict's board of directors wel- comed a new member to its ranks at the regular board meeting Dee. 12. Leslie Edlund was sworn in- to service as the East Quincy representative to the PUSD governing board by suPerin- tendent Micheline Miglis. Also sworn in for another four-year term were Chris Rhssell, of Portola, and Bret Cook, of Greenville. New officers were elected: Chris Russell will continue as president while Bob Tuerck will take over the duties of clerk from Sonja Anderson. Greenville gym The proposed new name for the Greenville High School gym is "John Holland Court at Stanley P. Timone Gymna- sium," reported advisory committee chair Russell Ccouch Both Holland and Ti- mone were longtime coaches in Indian Valley. The board will take the pro- posed name under considera- tion before deciding on the of- ficial name. Crouch reported that only two community members came to the public forums regarding the naming of the gym. Finances/austerity com- mittee Not much new was reported regarding the budget. The district is still running at a projected $2.87 million struc- tural deficit. Go to the district's website for financial or other reports: Superintendent Miglis gave a brief report on the austerity committee, members of which asked for an extension on their deadline. The committee has complet- ed its community forums and members are in the final stages of making their recom- mendations. They have until the end Of January to present their cost- cutting recommendations of $3 million to Miglis, who will, in turn, present her recom- mendations to the board in mid to late February. Bill Wickman presented a draft of a Forest Recovery Funds letter. The letter was recently approved by Feather River College and the Board of Supervisors. The board approved the draft with minor revisions volunteered by Edlund. The intent of the letter, addressed to the U.S. Forest Service, Na- tional Office, is to recoup lost revenue from fire ettlement funds as they may pertain to Secure Rural Schools pay- ments. Biomass boiler researched Superintendent Miglis pre- sented an update on research being conducted on alterna- tives to propane boilers at Pi- oneer-Quincy Elementary School and Portola High School. Miglis and Dave Putnam, maintenance supervisor, have been researching alternatives to propane. Miglis made a pre- sentation on the pros and cons of propane versus bio- mass boilers. She did not make a recommendation. Donations received The district received a num- ber of donations, ranging from $500 to $1,500, for three main projects. A donation of $2,000 was re- ceived for painting the Quin- cy High School library; $2,246.91 for new computers for C. Roy Carmichael Ele- mentary School's computer lab; and $1,377 for the Greenville High School art de- partment. Closed session The board conducted a closed session to discuss three items: public employment for non-represented administra- tive personnel, public employ- ment for superintendent's evaluation and an existing lit- igation case. No action was taken, reported President Russell. The 2013 board meeting schedule was approved and is posted on the district's web- site. The meetings have been changed to the first Thursday of the month (except when it falls on a scheduled holiday, in which case the meeting will be moved to the second Thursday). The next board meeting will be held in Quincy on Jan. 10. New Year's Eve in and around Graeagle New Year's Eve Celebration!
