The Del Norte County Unified School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved a $1.3 million bid from Cal Electro of Redding to replace the roof and restore the exterior at the middle school.

County may ask for extra time


Two county supervisors say there are errors in the travel management plan that need
to be clarified

The public may get a chance to look a little more closely at the Smith River Restoration and Travel Management Plan if the Board of Supervisors decides at its meeting today to request more time to review the plan.

Supervisors are poised to approve sending a letter to the Six Rivers National Forest Supervisor’s Office that requests a 30-day extension to comment on and review the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the travel management plan. According to County Planner Randy Hooper’s recommendation to the Board, members of the public have expressed interest in the plan and the Planning Department feels more time to review it would be appropriate. 



ACLU: More work needs to be done at schools


Lessons on tribal history, language and culture in development

Representatives with the American Civil Liberties Union and local tribes commended Del Norte County education officials on Thursday for efforts to reduce racial discrimination among Native American students since 2009.

But with Native American students making up a quarter of the suspensions in Del Norte County Unified School District, more work needs to be done, said Jory Steele, a managing attorney for the Education Equity Project of the ACLU of Northern California. Native American students account for 15 percent of the district’s overall student population, she said.

Graduation rate: Schools make the grade


 Del Norte stays ahead of California’s average

Del Norte’s graduation rate dipped slightly but continues to surpass the state average, according to data released by the California Department of Education last week.

Del Norte County Unified School District’s graduation rate was down from 90.3 percent in 2012 to 88.6 percent in 2013, Department of Education statistics show. But that’s still better than the statewide graduation rate, which showed that 80.2 percent of California’s students graduated with their class in 2013.



School threat incident concerns aired


Parents, officials review handling of recent high alert

A week after a perceived threat against an unspecified school that was posted on the internet put Del Norte County Unified School District on high alert, parents aired their concerns to school district and law enforcement officials.

Many parents on Tuesday said district officials should have notified them of the threat that night. Others were concerned about whether the situation was adequately communicated to teachers and students. And some said they were concerned about limited law enforcement resources and their ability to adequately secure Del Norte County’s schools.


Schools poised to extend ACLU deal

Del Norte County Unified School District officials today will discuss a settlement agreement stemming from a 2007 American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit that addressed allegations of racial discrimination against Native American students.

The Board of Trustees is poised to approve a proposed extension of the five-year settlement agreement, which was reached in 2009. This will allow the district to continue to develop curriculum that teaches the history, culture and language of Del Norte’s Native American tribes, the ACLU of Northern California announced on Wednesday.
