Two Opportunities for Budget Input

The School Board will be making a decision on possibly altering the kindergarten schedule for next school year at its regular meeting tonight, April 26, at 5:30 p.m. at the JDZ Administration Center. The decision to alter or retain the current kindergarten schedule will be made tonight in order to relay accurate information to parents at kindergarten registration events which begin next week.

Additionally, the Board will be taking input on other possible areas for budget reductions at a listening post at Grass Valley Elementary tomorrow, April 27, at 7:00 p.m. No board decision or action will take place at this event. Topics will include:

  • Reductions in athletics;
  • Implementation of half-mile or one mile walk zones;
  • Reductions in administration;
  • Reductions in teaching staff;
  • Reductions in support staff; and
  • Reductions in elementary music.

Please join us and share your thoughts about areas for budget reductions. If you are unable to attend, you may e-mail your ideas to the entire school board at
