Total drama. But there is a reason. Can you explain this oh great one Mr Sneaky?

This issue has been around for almost a year. There have been no new developments. It seems excessive to penalize CVUSD students so much for being 5 and 10 minutes short on minimum days at 2 schools last year. Hopefully state officials will take a common sense approach to crafting a reasonable solution instead of penalizing our children so excessively.

Thre is a law that even the great(est) administrators in CVUSD must follow. So now it is someone, government etc. "penalizing the students" yet again. Can you come up with a better phrase next time. Do not curse the darkness. Turn on the light.

It was almost a year ago, but I recall it was a CVUSD administrator who took full repsonsibility for the clerical error. I also recall the law is subject to interpretation when it comes to options for resolution and CDE officials have lattitude in determining the resolution based on a number of factors. Of course, Assemblymember Curt Hagman is also doing his part to pass legislation to provide an alternative common sense remedy. I believe if state officials focus on the needs of students, a common sense resolution will ultimately be reached, but with the state in as much financial distress as it is, I'm not certain.

This doesn't penalize the school, it penalizes the kids.

In Sept. 2008, by a 4-0 vote, the board passed a resolution declaring that "an ideal learning environment for children is within a nurturing home governed jointly by a mother and father."
Supporting that ideal was well within the board's responsibility.

This was new example of Nero(Michael "Mr Sneaky" Calta) fiddling while Rome burned. The district was on a runaway train and Mr Sneaky was involved with a subject that had absolutely nothing, nada to do with education. Some educators were for prop 8. Some were against. Why take up valuable time and energy on this subject? Why?

Did the administrator get fired by the way? Or saved by the unions?

It was a 4-0 vote supported by the vast majority of Chino Valley. While you may disagree that "an ideal learning environment for children is within a nurturing home with a mother and father" the ideal was upheld by 52% of California voters and over 70% of Chino Valley voters. Had Proposition 8 failed, K-12 education would have been directly impacted as it was already starting down that path in various parts of California following the pattern of Mass.

Which has nothing to do with education. Why don't you refocus your priorities and stop playing your fiddle while Rome burns.

Again, you are deflecting the blame to me. I never stated I disagreed with prop 8. Please try and keep on topic Sneaky man.
I (we) are saying that you are fiddling around with prop 8 and not taking care of business. i.e. closing 3 hispanic minority schools, paying $100,000+ for the defense of a convicted felon, allowing and defending an administrator to lose millions of $s for kids, running up $2 millions + in legal fees to keep the preserve school closed. Waiting to call for an audit after it was way too late. Allowing all the middle schools to crash. We could go on and on and on. I (we) have never nor do we now have any such lower ambitions to run for political office. We have no grudge, are not out for revenge, etc. Just want you to attend to school district business and make the right decisions for our kids.

Eddie, you are a sick puppy. Prop. 8 was all about protecting our kids and I am glad they have taken the issue seriously.

Hey Legally jr, instead of yapping on the internet blog with sour breath , why don't you do some volunteer work at a school in the district... and make yourself useful?

My school can always use more parent volunteers.

Stop being a mouthpieces with underlying selfish agenda. Our board member Mr. Calta has been doing an excellent job in transforming our district.
