By: League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County

August 23, 2012 - The League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County will feature a panel of Nevada County educators who will review the current status of the schools as a result of the statewide budget crunch at its regular meeting on Saturday morning, September 8, at the Peace Lutheran Church, 828 West Main Street, Grass Valley. Refreshments will be served at 9:30; the program will commence at 10:00.

The discussion will include an exploration of consolidating districts and the changes that would bring. Another important consideration is the curriculum. What has been the impact? Finally, cutbacks in staff, pink slips, increased class size -- all of these relate directly to the quality of educational offerings for our local students.

The panel will include Marianne Cartan, Superintendent of the Nevada Joint Union High School District; Trish Gerving, a member of the Nevada City School Board; Peter Minett, Williams Ranch School, Pleasant Valley School District; and Bonnie Taylor, Grass Valley School District Boardmember.

The crisis in public education statewide is aptly demonstrated locally. How are these districts meeting the challenge? Join us on September 8. Listen, learn, and join the discussion. You'll be glad you did!

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy. More information is available at www.LWVWNC.org.
