CUSD Winter Storm Procedures

December 2014

Dear Parents:

Again this winter, wind and rain storms could cause loss of electricity. This letter outlines what the District will do in the event that a decision to close school must be made:

During bad weather, we ask parents and staff to listen to their radio or TV for information about school closures.  Whenever possible, the decision to close school will be made by 6:30 a.m.

We will notify these stations:

                  103.1 FM                    KKCY Radio                         Yuba City

                  104 FM                       KXCL Radio                          Yuba City

                  107.5 FM                    KPPL Radio                          Chico

                  1600 AM                     KUBA Radio                         Yuba City

                  99.9 FM                      KRCX Radio (Spanish)        Yuba City

                  KCRA                         TV (Channel 3)                      Sacramento

                  KHSL                         TV (Channel 12)                    Chico

  1. Unless it becomes unsafe to keep students in the schools, we will generally try to retain students at school until the normal release times.  If we have to close school during the day and send students home, we will inform the radio or TV stations listed above, and post it on the District Web site and District Facebook pages.  Please do not call the schools for information.  The schools will be busy contacting parents of bus students first (so bus students will have a parent at the bus drop off site).  All information about school closures will be given to the radio and TV stations.
  2. A student sign-out sheet will be used in each school office for parents who are coming to pick up their students when school is closed for emergency purposes.
  3. Principals will remain on site until all students have been picked up by parents.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to speak to your child’s principal.

Sincerely,

Dwayne Newman

Superintendent

Seeking Volunteers for the Citizen's Oversight Committee
CUSD is seeking volunteers interested in serving on the Citizen’s Oversight Committee.  As detailed in Education Code 15278, the functions of a citizen’s oversight Committee are:
  • Inform the public concerning the expenditure of bond revenues.
  • Actively review and report on the proper expenditure of taxpayer’s money.
  • Report on District adherence to applicable laws, rules and regulations.
  • Ensure that bond revenues are expended only for the purposed described in applicable sections of the California Constitution and as described in the ballot language.
  • Ensure that no bond funds are expended on any teacher or administrator salary, or other school operating expenses.
  • Review the annual financial audit of bond funds.
  • Inspect school facilities to ensure the expenditures match the ballot language.
  • Review and report on the district’s efforts to reduce fees associated with hiring professional consultants; efficiency upgrades, site preparation, and reusable facility planning.

Below are the rules on who may serve on the committee.  The board will decide in their December meeting how to gather volunteers and select who serves (should we have more volunteers than positions).  The District is allowed to seat more than seven on the committee. 

The citizens' oversight committee shall consist of at least seven members who shall serve for a minimum term of two years without compensation and for no more than three consecutive terms. While consisting of a minimum of at least seven members, the citizens' oversight committee shall be comprised, as follows:

   (1) One member shall be active in a business organization representing the business community located within the school district.

   (2) One member shall be active in a senior citizens' organization.

   (3) One member shall be active in a bona fide taxpayers' organization.

   (4) For a school district, one member shall be the parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district.

   (5) For a school district, one member shall be both a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in the school district and active in a parent-teacher organization, such as the Parent Teacher Association or school site council.

An employee or official of the school district shall not be appointed to the citizens' oversight committee.

A vendor, contractor, or consultant of the school district shall not be appointed to the citizens' oversight committee.

If you are interested in serving on the Citizen’s Oversight Committee, please call Zeba Hone, Executive Administrative Assistant at (530) 458–7791 or email her at zhone@colusa.k12.ca.us.

Parking Lot Safety

We have been working with the Colusa PD to help with the congestion on Webster Street and in our parking lot both before and after school. There will be a change to the parking on the street that we want you to be aware of. There will be a loading zone only (Yellow Curb) in the following areas. On the street near the sand box between the cross walks will be painted yellow. On the street between the parking lot entrance and parking lot exit will be yellow. The street area across for the cafeteria on both sides of the crosswalk will be yellow. Thank you for your help.
