In an effort to address the student housing issues, the Twin Rivers Unified School District is looking at forming a committee to study optimal school size, optimal school grade configurations, school consolidation, school boundaries and staffing. Therefore, the district is currently forming what is referred to as a "Student Housing Committee." If you would like to participate and are qualified, we invite you to apply to be a member of the committee.
The purpose of the Student Housing Committee is to review the Board’s policy on student housing issues, such as optimal school size, optimal school grade configurations, school consolidation, school boundaries and staffing. The committee will then present a report to the Board of Trustees with recommendations. This is an important task and the district is looking for highly-qualified, capable and committed individuals to be members of the committee. The district will be using the process defined under California law (Education Code sec. 17389) for selection of members to this committee.
The ethnic, age group and socioeconomic composition of the district;
The business community, such as store owners, managers, or supervisors;
Landowners or renters with preference to be given to representatives of neighborhood associations;
Parents of students;
Persons with expertise in environmental impact, legal contracts, building codes, and land use planning, including, but not limited to, knowledge of the zoning and other land use restrictions of the cities or cities and counties in which surplus space and real property is located.
It is expected that the committee will be in place by Feb. 26, 2019 and will complete its work by Sept. 30, 2019. All committee meetings, proceedings, and deliberations will be open to the public. Meetings have been scheduled from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. at the District Office in the Board Room (5115 Dudley Blvd., Bay A, McClellan, CA 95652) as follows:
