Middle School Study Update
Dear Guerneville Parents & Families,
As you are aware, the Guerneville School District has recently revisited the possibility of partnering with West Sonoma County Union High School District and the Forestville Union School District to potentially offer a new 7-8th grade Middle School Charter Program at the Forestville School Campus beginning in the 2016-2017 school year.
After much consideration, fiscal analysis and parent, staff and community input, the Guerneville School Board unanimously voted at a Special Board Meeting (October 29, 2015) to conclude its current participation in this study option. While, the Board understands and supports the concept of a middle school program that could possibly offer a different and enriching program sponsored by the High School District, due to many unknowns, concluded that this could not be offered without the negatively impacting the overall K-6 programming needs of the Guerneville School District at this time. In fact, using “aggressively optimistic” figures, the fiscal projections, at best, painted a possible long-term stagnant District budget. In addition to fiscal considerations, the Board weighed other factors; such as the future employment of its current highly qualified staff, the need to offer an option to parents who do not choose to send their child to a pubic charter school and the huge academic success that our student graduates have had and are continuing to experience.
As the incoming Superintendent who has quickly worked to understand the interests of all in regards to this study, I appreciate the feedback received by our various stakeholders as we consider what is best for all of our students for many years to come.
I am confident we will collectively continue to build upon the current successes of our ever-evolving Guerneville Middle School Program. The staff, community, and FOGS (Friends of Guerneville School), have diligently worked to seek ways to provide further enrichment and community-based opportunities for our students. Together, with this momentum and focus on high standards, our students’ futures will continue to excel.
It is my pleasure to announce that the Guerneville School District will continue to offer full K-8 programming for the 2016-2017 school year!
~ Dana Pedersen/Superintendent
