Because the State does not provide complete or reliable funding for facilities, schools cannot maintain safe learning environments that meet current instructional standards without a local funding source. In order to complete identified repairs and improvements across all school sites, the CUSD Board of Trustees is considering placing a local bond measure on the ballot next year for local voters to consider.

In addressing the audience, Dr. Wickham acknowledged, "I couldn't have imagined โ€“ as the daughter of an immigrant dairyman who milked cows alongside my dad and brother before the bus came to pick me up for school every morning โ€“ that college could be in my future. ...
