Pine Creek School is facing many serious challenges
Legal Counsel was retained by the Board of Trustees to assist them in solving these challenges and to Re-align Pine Creek School with its Core Values that are important to us all.
Counsel expressed surprise and concern at the number of non-resident students compared to in-district students – almost 3 to 1.
Pine Creek School was built as a small rural school, designed to meet the needs of its residents in District 19.Enrollment has doubled in the last 5 years – from 27 total students in 2007 to 54 anticipated this Fall.
Legal counsel urges the Board to close enrollment to non-resident students for the upcoming school year and to focus its attention and resources on its resident students. In-district students are anticipated to be between 20-25 students, similar to the total enrollment just 5 years ago. The budget would remain largely unchanged for the next two years while the Board would have the opportunity to effectively manage a smaller staff and student body and address serious problems at the school.
Pine Creek School needs to get back to its Core Values. Quality education in a safe, nurturing environment.
The Board needs to “get their house in order” - according to attorney Jeffrey Weldon. The Board needs to act now!
The legal duty and responsibility of the Board is to the residents of the Pine Creek School District. The Trustees need our help. They need to know where residents stand on this important issue.
We the Undersigned request that the Board of Trustees bring Pine Creek School back to the residents of District 19.
