Welcome to GUSD
Last night, the County Committee on School District Organization met to consider the Greenfield Community Unification Petition. Specifically, they met to decide if all 9 of the required unification criteria had been met by the Petition. After receiving the reports of the County’s consultants as well as comments from the Petitioners, the District and members of the public, the County Committee made favorable findings on Criteria 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8. The Committee did NOT make negative findings on Criteria 3, 6, 9, but rather, voted to defer their consideration of those items and seek a waiver from the State Board of Education of the deadline to make a final determination on the remaining 3 criteria. They did this in order to allow the District time to work with the County and the High School District to deal with the iBank loan and reach agreements and commitments on budgetary issues going forward. The waiver will give the County Committee up until April 5, 2018, to make a final determination though the County noted that the parties do not have to avail themselves of the entire time extension and that they will consider the remaining criteria when the parties have resolved any outstanding issues surrounding the financial concerns. In Summary:
We appreciate the support of the community throughout this process and will continue to post updates as they become available. Should you have any questions about this update or about the unification process in general, please feel free to contact the District Superintendent’s Office at (831) 674-2840.
